As I wrote the :lanes proposal I'm obviously in favour of using it whenever
it is useful. And useful for me means: whenever there is not a simpler
tagging variant. If there is a simple road, two lanes, one in each
direction and on both side there's a cycle lane, then there is definitively
no need at all for any :lanes tagging. On the other hand, if we are looking
at junctions with multiple (turning) lanes and multiple cycle lanes, then
we should use the :lanes tagging in addition(!) to the good old cycleway

In general I would like to see the :lanes tagging used to provide more
details and not to replace established tagging.
