[Tagging] Foot or foot.cycle crossing

Sorry for being late to the party!

My understanding is that there isn't a documented tagging strategy for a
marked cycle lane crossing that's mapped as on a street way.

cycleway=crossing covers this scenario if the cycleway has been separately
mapped, so I wonder if a proposal for a tag like cycleway:
right:lane=crossing would be a logical extension. It could be applied to
the street way from the start of the crossing to the end of the crossing.

Specifying the crossing type (if necessary) could lead to an awkwardly long
key, as the nested would always need a side-of-street reference, like
cycleway:right:lane:crossing=uncontrolled. Maybe there should just be one
tag: cycleway:right: crossing=yes/no/uncontrolled (whatever that
