I guess it doesn't exist in America, but in Europe there are larger residental area's where there are no car allowed and you have to walk a few streets.

Exactly. I am saying that if this situation exists in the US or anywhere, then it should be considered as an exception to the "no connection" rule. If the house address is named after a no-vehicles allowed "street" then why not have it set properly as a walking trail, with the house numbers associated with it attached to the named, no-vehicle street.

If they don't exist anywhere in the US, and I do not know that they do or do not, then this is moot.

There's still a significant penalty to Walking Trail which would prevent (in most cases) Waze routing through such segments, but if it is a destination point (think private installation), why can't it be connected? Depending on how much walking there is, using the Waze map while finishing the Walk to the destination could be useful.

If destinations truly are on named walking-only streets, then I think they s/could be attached and have the addresses set there. This would be an exception to the "never connect" rule we currently use.

In some countries, there are named walkways which the house address is actually named after which have the house numbers, but you have to park and then walk.
