[mkgmap-dev] map detects barriers like gate as passable by motor vehicle when it is only restricted to pedestrians

Just want to share a report from one of the gps map users.

In this example, the gate blocks any motor vehicle from going to
grasshopper street and spider intersection, and to crispina. This gate
is only passable by pedestrian.
If the destination is somewhere crispina, the correct route should be
through caterpillar avenue and then left on spider street.

Here is a sample route with gate as barrier:

The calculated route in roadtrip is here:

I'm inclined to think that this is a data problem (the gate should
explicitly define that is only usefule for pedestrians).  I can't find
the correct tagging for this one at the moment.  If such tag exist, is
it supported by mkgmap?
