I'd prefer something more structured than duck tagging a crowded amenity tag, simply because we're likely to
encounter more types of training as time goes by.  amenity=training + training=cycling works for me. 


as you can train almost everything, we could make "training" "new"[1] key.

The proposed "training=cycling" already has everything, there is nothing added with amenity=training. Still, training=cycling is very broad in its possible meaning, could be a racetrack for people who ride bicycle races on the street, it could be a place where people that perform tricks with bicycles (or skateboards, etc.) exercise, it could be a place where downhill bikers exercise, or one where you bring the kids to learn about basic traffic rules.

"children traffic safety education" (is a generic function, as it doesn't state indoor, outdoor, or maybe classrooms)
"children driver training area" (is about a physical place)
"children traffic training centre"

As always there's the question where to use subtags for "small" differences (e.g. traffic training for bicycles and those for cars, or in golfing driving range vs. the green), etc. and where it makes more sense to have "main level" different tags because things are quite different. (e.g. the driving range is quite different from a putting green, but they share the same specific field of endaveour, both are golf training places).

"training" comes in all kinds, sauces and context, so a new "training" key would be one possible way to do it, but it is not how the system of established tags works (because a lot of training already happens behind other tags).
