I am planning to remove the { add bicycle=no; add foot=no } from 
highway=trunk and to restore non-bicycle paths to road_speed=0.

Do you have test cases in mind? Can you try the attached patch?

Long term, I would remove the "Convert generic path to most specific" 
and translate the highway=(cycleway|footway|bridleway) to highway=path 
instead. In that way, we can better keep the access tags intact.

Best regards,
