Oh, cool! Sorry for the mistake. It must be the use of "bicycle=designated"
- I think I've used "bicycle=yes" in the past, and just seen the generic
"highway=path" rendering. That's quite interesting... So, the only cases
where disagreement remains would be where a path is not *designated* a bike
path, but acts/looks like one. Hmm.
