 Reminds me of the wrong usage of highway=footway. This is a VERY widespread issue, where people keep thinking that "small path with no vehicles allowed" = "footpath". Nope. It's just a path with no persmission for vehices. Otherwise it would need a blue signalisation for pedestrians.

note that none of those tag doesn't describe a not-passable road
for vehicle routing. I say this because this data could one day be 
useful to osm so we might as well use the right tags to facilitate reuse.

vehicle=no or motor_vehicle=no would be a less bad choice (but
that describe a sign)
if the way is impassable because it is too narrow, highway=path
if it is because of the presence of holes/pebbles smoothness=very_horrible

my answer may not be what you want, but I will do so:
- upload it to osm, wait 1 minute and retrieve the diff
and if you want to keep the edit private, create a diff (increse version 
number, copy previous tag and add your own
- run any tool that can update a pbf from a diff for ex osmosis
