[Tagging] routes with double use hiking and bicycle

There are routes out there that can be used by bicycle and on foot. Up tp
now I have classified them as one or the or the other, tagging according to
the prevalent use. This is unsatisfactory and, strictly speaking, not
corresponding to the principle of on-the-ground-truth.
I would like to distinguish between
- routes that are exclusively hiking (containing ways that are
off-limits for bicycles)
- routes that are exclusively for cycling (containing ways that are not
suitable for pedestrians)
- routes that are intended for double use
The formally correct solution is "route=hiking;bicycle", and
but this tagging is discouraged  and is flagged as error by JOSM, and I
suspect that it also not supported by data users, as it is not documented
In my part of the world (Northern Italy) we have plenty of mixed-use
routes, which is in most cases already reflected in their name " percorso
I suppose that this has been discussed in the past, and apologize if I did
not find (or forgot) where.
