>> highway=cycleway cycleway=crossing
> I have been mapping more and more cycleways here in Japan, and there is a true need for cycleway=crossing. 
> Unlike some other countries where the cycleway is more akin to a road, cycleways here in Japan are often treated like footpaths, and dead-end into sidewalks and use pedestrian crosswalks for crossing roads. I have no problem using relation links to incluse non-cycleway ways into a larger cyclepath replation, but often times a cyclepath crosses a road and there is heavily painted markings, such as a zebra crossing. 
It is the same situation as in Poland. I am using highway=crossing bicycle=yes
(and highway=crossing bicycle=no for cases where cycleway crosses road and cyclist is legally
obligated to dismount and cross as a pedestrian)

> there are ~12,000 uses of cycleway=crossing  on ways according to taginfo, but no documentation for the tag.

See also "footway=crossing and cycleway=crossing are sometimes used on ways which lead 
from a sidewalk to the crossing node (The node which has this highway=crossing tag) "
