Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

A couple of things strike me about this option, which is common in the UK where councils give access to pavements or urban footpaths to bicycles to increase their cycle lane provision.

One is that the rendering in most (all?) maps shows this as the same as a pure cycle path, which isn't very informative as it makes it look like a dedicated cycleway. An area I've been updating contains a separate pavement (foot) and a dedicated cycle path which then merge into an unsegregated combined path, and to the map reader it looks like the footpath disappears completely. A red and blue dashed lined would be more useful.

The other is the " Bicycle-Pedestrian Separation" option which only automatically fills in the "segregation" tag if you tick "yes" and doesn't do so if you tick "no".

So what is your question?

For general discussion about cycle provision on footpaths in the UK https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk-gb or #OSM-GB on IRC is probably the best option; for "conversation about tagging issues" more generally I'd suggest https://community.openstreetmap.org/c/help-and-support/tagging/71 .

"help.osm.org" has a fairly rigid question / answer / comment format which doesn't really lend itself to "conversational" questions like this one.
