So you turn into the driveway and switch to pedestrian mode at the 
instant you cross the sidewalk, and are therefore no longer upon a 
roadway :)

Seriously, I'd say this is probably a very gray area of the law. I'm 
sure there are many streets that are marked 'no thru traffic' but are 
inventoried if not signed as parts of a medium-distance bike route. So a 
bike router is probably better-off ignoring access=destination in 
general, unless the user specifies that he wants to follow the letter of 
the law.
