Until now, we had a pretty clear definition of cycleway=lane (sharing the
main roads infrastructure) and cycleway=track (along the road but
separated). If you introduce more values, you should clearly explain on the
wiki what is the difference with the two previous values and why you want to
create a new one, especially sharrow (if it is on the road but not
exclusive, where is the value ?). Also 'shoulder' should be described for
non native english speakers. For me, all roads in countryside have
shoulders, so why some should be tagged and others not ? It also doesn't
mean that you can use them for cycling. Or is it implied for 'shoulders'
(width, surface, smoothness) ? and for which types of bikes ?
