I am talking about bicycle lanes that are not physically separate from
the car lanes. These should  be mapped as cycleway=lane (or variants
thereof, such as cycleway:left/right=lane), but some micromappers seem
to like mapping them as individual ways for some reason.

While cycleway=lane is fine as a start, I would suggest that these
should also be added to the *:lanes list _if_ you use a proposal such as
the one I linked to earlier. Otherwise, some situations cannot be
adequately modelled.
