I'll restate it: every way or path *especially* suitable. More suitable than
average. Much more suitable than average, if you like.

Anyway, I'm obviously not getting my message across, so I'm going to have to
think about how to express it more clearly. I'm not trying to turn OSM into
a bike project - I'm actually just trying to work out a definition of
cycleway that people can agree on and that is useful.

Yeah, I'll be investigating that direction too.
