Heh, didn't think about that. I wouldn't do it, because in practice 
those kinds of trails tend to weave around a bit anyway. The idea of 
"cycleway=track" meaning "a separate way parallel to this one" is 
problematic I think. It works ok in the context of a road where the 
"track" is always immediately adjacent to the side of the road (or in 
some cases is actually within the road surface, but divided some other way).
