The motorway example was of your making and yes, it is bad. :-)

My point is: There is an important difference between
- a real, official cycleway (prohibited by law for others)
- some way that looks like it was pretty much suitable for cycling

About like  the difference between
- a road marked as one-way (prohibited by law in one direction)
- a road that looks like it is too narrow for two cars to pass each other

I am looking for a way to tag the difference clearly. I do not like 
schemes that obfuscate it even more.
