Hi all,
I'm the co-author of this proposal.
There are a difference about bicycle-forbidden and a compulsory cycleway.

At a "bicycle forbidden" section cycling is not allowed ever.
At a road with a compulsory cycleway, it is allowed to cycle on the road,  
if the cycleway is not passable, reachable or some other exceptions.  
With bicycle=no the secondary is not reachable. With bicycle=use_cycleway  
a router can give those roads a lower factor.

In Germany it is allowed to leave the cycleway for a leftturn, if you  
choose the normal leftturn-lane (which cars use). Or in Austria training  
with a racebike is allowed to don't look after compulsory cycleway. I.e.  
for the last case the router can give you an option to allow  

We can't wait until all router add this tag, because they would say: "we  
pay heed to this tag, because is not common.
