Now I've understood you, and I think I agree with you:

This "cycleway=opposite" is something like an abused tag, as in reality there is no cycleway.

The problem is that no renderer understands "oneway:bicycle=no", which would be the correct tag.

I have mailed and phoned to the maintainers of two renderers on this subject, Andy Allen of OSM cyclemap and Sven Geggus ("giggls") of OSM.de.
Both answered, I were right, but I doubt if one of the renderers has been improved, since.
Perhaps somebody has to tag a street of little importance with  "oneway:bicycle=no" but without  "cycleway=opposite", and then wait for a forthight.
