I do think this is not a real probolem because our Map is never ready, next 
mapper will correct these previous tags.
I'm more worried about hte mappers that think that in *every* cycleway=track 
situation a seperated way is the best option to map it.
Re-mapping that is a greater problem.

That's right.
But the problem is, that already hundreds or thousands of cycleway=track
tagged yet - but in reality they are single-side.
That's the eternal problem, if a tagging is refined lately ... or
previous used too early.
So you might know, that you implicite mean both, if you tag it now.
But any user doesn't know, if you really meant that - or if you didn't
care about the late refine of left, right, both - because the tagging
was already done much earlier.
