And why not? What's the difference between "road: you may not cycle,
cyclepath: you may cycle" and "road: you may only cycle on the cyclepath,
cyclepath: you may cycle"? And if it's such an important difference, why
only use this for cyclists? Why not put a "motor_vehicle:use_carriageway"
on the cyclepath?
