well, I'm pretty sure if you'd start today you would have changed them
within some weeks, but still "mainly" designed could be interpreted for some
of those 22,000 cycleways as well, couldn't it?

On the other hand Germany alone has 4 times the cycleways in OSM and does
require distinction between formal cycleways and other ways where cycles
might be allowed as well but are not considered cycleways. Haven't looked up
the numbers for France, Italy, the Netherlands and so on, but I agree with
you: the best will be to find a workaround for yesterdays mistakes.
