I agree.  But not for your reasons.  Should be charging:bicycle=yes,

And then you encounter a charging station which accommodates both cars and
bicycles.  Which isn't a problem with the existing scheme:
amenity=charging_station +
car=yes + bicycle=yes.  Which isn't a problemwith a more modern version of
the existing scheme:
amenity=charging_station + charging:bicycle=yes + charging:car=yes.  Which
a BIG problem with your idea.  Because then you have to use
amenity=bicycle_charging_station;car_charging_station and which one gets
rendered (if any)
is up to the carto.
