For an ordinary bike I do not think that routing will differ from the
situation where we would tag all these type 2 way's with a "bicycle-no" .
The problem is that there are many mappers that do not think it is wise to
add a bicycle=no on a road that has no explicit ban for bicycles. And they
do have a point because there are many exceptions. On the DE forum there's
been a discussion <http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=21938>about
this (in english).  The new tag makes better routing possible for all these
exeptions without tags like "my special vehicle=yes" or "a team with more
then 10 racebikes=yes" etc.

How does your proposal distinguish the exceptions to the rule that you gave

I'm afraid I do not understand what you mean. Could you give an example?
