Sorry to bring up this old topic but I have run into a similar situation in Perth, AU. I am attempting to map the sidewalks in my local area and have so far only mapped shared use paths (cycle paths). I am deciding whether to map sidewalks but am not sure whether this is a good idea. In Perth sidewalks generally exist on the main routes within suburbs and generally link Schools, Train Stations, Shopping Centers etc. As of now these routes are not mapped anywhere so I am wondering if me mapping this in my local area is a good idea as it may induce inconsistency. The other issue is how I should go about mapping paths in City areas, especially through Indoor malls. Hopefully you can help me.

For info Overpass finds a few north of the Leach Highway just south of the airport:

(search for Perth, zoom out and then run the query)
