I've always been editing using JOSM and using the "lane and road attributes" mapstyle for visualization (which is pretty much the only editor/map style I'm aware of that has support for the large majority of lane related tags, making it pretty much the defacto standard implementation given the the majority of the relevant proposals never went to voting).

I've never gotten any validation errors when correctly tagging a road with cycle lanes (that is, e.g. for a "normal" 2-way road: lanes=2, cycleway=lane, and :lanes:forward and :lanes:backward tags with 2 values each).

If there are any validation tools that would complain about this situation, then they are broken and the bug needs to be reported.
