I think the norm is to use British English on OSM. "Kerb" is a specialised
spelling of "curb" used only in this context (according to the Oxford
English Dictionary). Kerb is also US English for this (apparently). There
might be somewhere else that uses "curb" - Australia?

I'm tending towards cycleway=lane+segregated=kerb (or cycleway=track if it's
two-way)
