There is a basic dissent about the meaning of access=designated (and of 
the derived use of highway=footway, highway=cycleway). This is 
illustrated by repeated animated discussions on talk-de that merely 
outlined the opposing opinions but remained without result. The use of 
the tags in the database is just as inconsistent.

This proposal aims at resolving the dispute by displaying the different 
interpretations side by side and suggesting a new access tag as a 
technical solution to represent both intended meanings in the database 
without conflict.
