I mean that bicycle=no bans  bicycles from the road, while the actual
situation is that you have to use the cycleway if it leads where you are
going (and nothing bans you from using the road). If you want to turn left
for instance but the cycleway goes straight, you can use the road. There is
no ban of bikes on the road. Bicycle=destination is similarly wrong, as the
meaning is that you can go there if your destination is there (but not for
going through).

I really fail to understand why people from different legislations, where
laws like this apparently don't exist (namely US and UK here), engage
strongly in this discussion and oppose the introduction of the new tag by
voting, which really doesn't affect them at all, nor will they meet these
tags where they map. You can see from the comments why they don't approve
the proposal, that there is no understanding of the actual problem.
