Yeah this is a problem with tagging for the renderer/routing software.
Especially lots of Router/Maps for bicycles do not work that well with
path and foot/bicycle=official/designated/yes/no.

Missing advice in preset about optional tags is not helpful, too.

I would deprecate bicycleway/bridleway/footway and only use path but
that is out of scope right now.
