Not sure I understand. When the cycleway is mapped entirely separate from
the road, you mark it highway=cycleway. When it's physically separate, but
mapped just by tagging the road, you mark it cycleway=track. When it's
physically on the road with no barrier, you mark it cycleway=lane.

Are you saying that that's what you're doing, and it's not enough? Or am I

So, you're saying that you want a finer distinction of cycleway=track, to
distinguish paths that are physically at road level, and those that are at
pedestrian level?
