sidewalk:both: is also a prefix for a set of tags that describe attributes of both sidewalks of a street. See the additional tags section of sidewalk=* for examples of tags such as sidewalk:both:surface=*.
It has seen considerable usage as sidewalk:both=separate.
|no||There is no sidewalk on either side of the road.|
|yes||There are sidewalks on both sides of the road, and these are not mapped as separate ways.|
|separate||There are sidewalks on both sides of the road, and both are mapped using separate ways.|
This key's most common value sidewalk:both=separate may express its intent more clearly — i.e., making explicit that a separate highway=footway is mapped on both sides of the street, whereas sidewalk=separate may be seen as covering both this as well as the case where a separate sidewalk is mapped on only one side without specifying which side.
