How are they different? If I have a oneway=yes way:


oneway:bicycle=no tells me that bicycles can pass along this way A->B 
and B->A

exactly the same case if there is any of the tags:

They tell me the same thing. The point of this discussion is what the 
*preferred* method should be not how many different ways there are to 
tag the same piece of information. My point is simply why should mappers 
be told to prefer the less used and less likely to be consumed option 
rather than the much more common option?

accompanied by:


then there is no dedicated cycling infrastructure.
