from my understanding, "oneway" is a legal restriction, and it also defines
the direction (yes means in direction of the osm object, -1 means in
counter direction).

I would not read too much implicit restrictions or permissions into
"cycleway:left"=track/lane etc. as the intended "defaults" may vary across
jurisdictions and mappers, and would rather add explicit information about
oneway, amount of lanes, surface, width etc.
