What does "legally accessible" mean? Are they Public Footpaths? Do we
tag all Public Footpaths with an explicit "foot=yes" or is
"designation=public_footpath" enough?

My understanding is that the default for a footway is foot=designated, but designated requires an explicit sign. the paths on Wimbledon Common do not have an explicit sign, but are legally accessible, hence foot=yes. Perhaps osmose is wrong.
