Also, from the definitions section:

"crosswalk" means: (i) that part of a highway at an intersection that is included within the connections of the lateral lines of the sidewalks on opposite sides of the highway measured from the curbs or, in the absence of curbs, from the edges of the roadway; or,

(ii) any portion of a roadway at an intersection or elsewhere distinctly indicated for pedestrian crossing by signs or by lines or other markings on the surface;

My interpretation of (i) is that any intersection has an assumed "crosswalk" whether it is painted or not. If there is a sidewalk perpendicular to the road you want to cross, you can keep walking as if the sidewalk is extended and it's considered a "crosswalk". If the street intersecting the one you want to cross does not have a sidewalk, you can walk across as if you are "walking on the left edge of the street" as set out in #2 in my previous post (#39 in the actual document). So ferguson is OK.

For completeness:
