I dont really care what the default is as long as the wiki page is very
clear about it.

Currently it says "implies: foot=yes" which does not match the sign
shown in the top right corner. Again it lists an example with the sign
telling foot/bicycle share the path and explicitly says "foot=yes" which
should be unnecessary as this is already implied.

So if it really implies "foot=yes" the bottom example is bogus and the
sign at the top right is bogus. 

If it does imply "foot=no" it should say so in the right "implies:"
