This topic has come up before, and unfortunately when you think about
it, there is no objective way to define a "no go area". It's all
subjective. So it doesn't belong in OSM.
People do live in many of these areas, so software that didn't route
in/through these areas would be pretty bad for people who need to go there!
Plus, "no go areas" are often correlated with where ethnic minorities or
different classes live, which is not good.
