"cycleway=track"

I propose to treat this tag as a special case of fixme - it indicates
some sort of cycleway parallel to road, without any additional details.

In theory it is possible to add tags that specify surface, side of road,
width by tags like cycleway:track:left:surface, but it is ridiculous.

Especially specifying geometry (where cycleway is) is
nearly impossible (and sometimes impossible in any sane way -
sometimes cycleway is next to road but distance changes).

These things are trivial for tagging as a separate way
(with highway=cycleway with normal set of tags). Especially
geometry is defined in a standard way, not by some ridiculous tags.

At least this is my experience from tagging cycleway
data in Kraków and using this data to render a map of bicycle
related infrastructure.
