routeType bicyle and footpaths with stairs


I am trying to use the MapQuest Guidance API in order to build a navigation tool dedicated to bicycles and two-wheelers in general and I found a bug or if it is not an idea of improvement in your solution.

When requesting the routeType bicycle, I got a path that use a footpath containing stairs. I checked on OSM and it is indicated by the highway attribute that is set to 'steps'. I think this might be a good idea to avoid this kind of path. If you know this issue and decided to leave as it, can you explain me your motivation ?

Thanks for your help !
