I don't know what you mean by "quality" but if a sidewalk isn't usable
as a sidewalk, then don't label it as such, just as I wouldn't be
inclined to map a road that's unusable as a usable road.

If you insist on micromapping, then you can use complex objects like
relations, but your is a special case, most sidewalks mapped are not
micromapped in the same way.

In other words, I wouldn't bother to map sidewalks that are not usable.
