Let's make an effort to keep tagging schemes globally applicable, and
avoid assuming that local practice is standard everywhere.

It seems to me that, depending on where you are, you could have:
* roads with sharrows that are not designated cycling routes
* roads that are designated cycling routes that have no sharrows
* roads with sharrows, that are designated cycling routes

Any arguments against cycleway=sharrow?
