My confusion probably came from this language barrier again. When I used
"footway" it's to mean "A track made for pedestrian", so it seems odd to
see a foot=no tag on it.
I just had to remember that "footway" is probably something else in
In France, only motorway are strictly forbidden to pedestrian, but the
law state that if a sideway is available along any road it _had_ to be
used (I learned that because roller are considered as pedestrians).
That's why I put foot=no by default for some road types on my *example*
Concerning cycleway/footway difference, we have here a part of some road
reserved for bicycles. Sometime roads only for bicycles. It's what I
will naturally tag as cycleway, and the pedestrian are not allowed to
stay on those roads if a sideway is available. Once again it's a value
from Map Feature that probably mean something else for English people.
