Your reply is only valid for the first line of the citation.

The rest of the citation sounds better than the proposed "use_cycleway" 
- at least for me. But its just the "name", not the intention, which is 
the same for both.
If there is a need for the additional tag of "country-specific" or if it 
may be as country-specific-implicit as other implications for highways 
already - I don't know.
