@ Martin

I understand what you are saying. With regard to routing I did not expect
we had to explain why it could be improved by this new tag. There have been
some examples like this
that a router that wants SHORTEST way has no way of knowing it
should not take the main road. Still routing is a difficult issue. And as
some say... routing is not something to be mapped as a prime goal so our
aim is to just focus on bicycle access. A better routing is then a spin
off. Discussions about routing leads away from  "bicycle access" as the
main goal. I think (but you never know ;-) )  it is easier to explain that
bicycle access on these roads differs from roads with explicit ban or roads
that allow cycling (always). Having said that.... it still is difficult to
come to some sort of agreement but we're going to give it a try.
