[Tagging] Meaning of cycleway=no

Recently I read in OSM Weekly about new maps by MapCat. Driven by
curiosity I opened this map and when I switched to bike mode in my
city I notice a lot of non-existing cycling infrastructure. After
investigation I discovered that MapCat renders all values of cycleway
as bike lane, what in presence of "no" value is an apparent bug.
Looking on taginfo, it seems, that cycleway=no is second most used value in OSM:
Though I find it hard to understand, what it means. We could give a
lot of tags with "no" value - building=no on landuse= and highway= and
so on. Even I found combination of highway=cycleway + cycleway=no.
As I asked this question on Polish OSM forum and Mateusz updated wiki
with description of "no" value.
Can anybody point me to explanation of this tag value? Should it's use
be discouraged by validators / presets? (at least combinations as
highway=cycleway + cycleway=no)
