In a sense legal responsibility is of secondary importance to a vulnerable user. The innate desire that most living organisms do to continue living and the responsibility that they take in order to do so results in those that survive to adulthood having had to take that responsibility regardless of the law.
If a law was introduced tomorrow that allowed me unfettered rights to cross the freeway and that all traffic had to five way to me, I would be a rare idiot indeed if I did not take responsibility for my own safety.
When you look at it like that then there is less need to regulate a ped.
Though I feel that my argument is not well supported in fact, Daily I see peds moving off to the right of PSPs and RSPs without a glance.
