Sure, but you said "The problem is not verifiability, it's how you
record what you can see."

In *Australia*, the problem with bicycle=yes/no (i.e. tagging *legal*
status) is indeed verifiability.

Hence, if "you can see" a 2m wide concrete path, but no signage and
have no "non-copyright information on legal status", highway=path +
surface=concrete + width=2 is exactly what you should tag. If it has
"tyre-tracks", feel free to add tyre_tracks=visible.
