Oneway is a separate tag, not a separate highway value. This whole argument
stems from a fight over what a particular highway value should mean.
There'll never be consensus, so lets find other tags to make the
distinctions we want, and discourage people from reading too much into
highway=cycleway (I wouldn't go so far as to deprecate it, just insist that
people add tags if they want to convey a more precise meaning).
