|For living streets, direct tagging with highway=living_street is preferred.|
The tag living_street=yes is used by some mappers to mark streets where pedestrians are superior to vehicles as defined in road rules. It was based on a proposal from 2009, after the more common tag highway=living_street had been approved.
It is supposed to mark a road that has a different classification than 'living street' but is a living street. This contradiction reveals the fundamental flaw of this tag. It is considered a Trolltag by some users, which contradicts the value of the main tag in a sub tag.
