Dear Nathan,

This replay seems to be a little off-topic, but I want to put it here 
Sinds I started this topic it became clear that several people understands 
that there is a general problem with seperated cycleways not being part 
anymore of the main road. They mainly try to find a solution for it by 
pointing out their effort.

You are only breaking down their states by generating situations in which 
the solution is not working. I suggest you start continuing your 
participation by appoching their effort more possitively and coming up with 
your own solutions. We are not each other opponents, but collegues. Please, 
act like one.

So how does a renderer/router know if a nearby cycleway is the track
referred to by the tag on the roadway, or if there's another unmapped
cycleway between that one and the road? (This could happen, for
example, if a rail trail parallels a road with a sidepath.)
