Thanks, I was unaware about it! I was always really frustrated by iD
hiding tags and requiring scrolling to get it (and really slow performance).
I admit that I was unaware that it is used as a primary editor also by people
editing tags directly.
Sorry for spreading misinformation.

Yes, if both are in a widespread use then both should be described.
Claim that opposite_lane is a value that has no meaning with cycleway:left
that appeared on Wiki (in edit description) is completely untrue.
Maybe some people dislike this tag and it is more confusing than it should be
but it has a known meaning.
