foot:forward=* and its counterpart foot:backward=* are used by some mappers to indicate a feature can only be used in one direction by pedestrians. In the past, some mappers have used oneway=yes for this purpose, but it goes against the definition of the oneway-tag which applies only to vehicles. Therefore also the tag oneway:foot=yes should be avoided (because a subtag should not contradict the main tag).
