[Tagging] tagging of one-way cycle lanes

The only way to do it properly is

- define a new tag "lanes_for_all_transportation_modes"
- deprecate lanes (during this period data-consumers should use
"lanes_for_all_transportation_modes" and fallback on "lanes" if the
former is not there)
- wait until all highways with a lanes tag also have
"lanes_for_all_transportation_modes"
- drop "lanes"-tag
- rename "lanes_for_all_transportation_modes" to "lanes"-tag

but that is only if you want a definition for lanes that no non-OSM'er
understand. As pointed out before, traffic rules and most people
understand lane as something on which you can drive with a car.
