and how many of those residentials have a cycleway=cyclestreet /
cycleroad tag attached? There are undoubtedly less cycleroads in the
real world than residentials, but as it is legally (at least in some
countries) a (new) own class of streets like pedestrian areas, it does
make sense to introduce them in OSM as well (IMHO as own
highway-type). I expect growing numbers of them in the future.
Maxspeed=30 doesn't meet the point at least in Germany (cars have to
adopt their speed to the bicycle-speed if present, bikes are allowed
to drive side-by-side and cars must drive behind them in this case).
