The use of subjective tags is not completely clear, but I've not had an OSM person contact me after I used it (yet).

In the UK there isn't a physical 'discouraged' sign or equivalent for foot traffic, so it's hard to see how it could ever be official.  We have had instances locally of the police picking up people, who were walking at the side of fast dual carriageways, and dropping them somewhere safer.  That feels a bit offical https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

I came across the same issue here in the UK.  A section of a local 70mph dual carriageway appeared as a runnable section due to it having a common name assigned in OSM.
I tried to set the access to no as a practical solution, but an OSM person appeared and I got the lecture too!

I think setting the foot access to 'discouraged' might fit.  It adheres to the OSM documentation (deemed subjective where not physically signed).  These sections could (are?) excluded from the street index used.
