If I understand correctly you're saying that the combination of a
"bicycle=no" & "bicycle:use_cycleway=yes" could mean the same thing as the
proposed tag. I think it could but I'm not realy in favour of this. The
main reason is that I prefer a "bicycle=" tag so there are no contradicting
options possible and things get clear in just 1 tag. What if a road would
be tagged with a "bicycle=yes" & "bicycle:use_cycleway=yes". What
information would this give to a router?
I don't understand what kind of problems routers/renderers whould have.
Could you explain a little. Remember that most roads for which this new tag
is introduced do not have a "bicycle= " tag yet. (with the exeption of NL)
