it follows the current footway=crossing + crossing=*  tagging scheme, so instead of:

highway=footway
footway=crossing
crossing=marked

it is:

highway=cycleway
cycleway=crossing
crossing=marked

Now, similar to bridge=*, it would be easier to say:

highway=cycleway
crossing=marked

But there is already a trillion uses of the footway scheme and 12 thousand uses of the cycleway=crossing, so using cycleway=crossing (as it is in-use and matches footway) is an acceptable compromise.
