No, there are other kinds of designation covered by bicycle=designated.

I think we should pick a specific tag, write it up in the wiki, and go
for it. Either:




I prefer the former as it's unambiguous what it refers to, even if the
term isn't familiar to everyone: a non-exclusive marking on the road
indicating to cyclists where to ride, and warning drivers to look out
for them.

(Later, we may want to get fancier with sharrow=turn_lane,
sharrow=left or whatever...but that's later)
