to quote imagico (http://blog.imagico.de/social-engineering-in-openstreetmap/)

"So if – as a mapper – you want to really support and encourage
competent data use better ignore any assumed interests of data users
and map as you as a mapper can most efficiently represent your
observations on the ground in data form."

this might very well apply in this situation, so when you can better
tag a sidewalk with a separate line, why not ?
