Nonsense. There'll be a footway alongside that they can use (99.999%
of the time).

If you want to micro-map a footway as well, and put foot=no on the
cycleway, feel free.

But unless you've micro-mapped the footway, you should *not* be adding
foot=no explicitly or implicitly, unless there really is no route. And
the simplest way to show that it has been micromapped is to put an
explicit foot=no on the cycleway when you've done it.

I can see why this sort of nonsense would put a commercial router off
- it may not affect their current service, but it doesn't exactly
inspire confidence, does it?
