Ok, you need examples :
this Eurovelo 3 is for tourism
this REVe Nord-Sud is for commute/every day cycling
as you can see in this video https://youtu.be/1dGtSZbUKew
and this is for road cycling
as you can see in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLwNlVjTOKU

mtb:scale / surfaces tags are for ways not relation.

Of course nobody will blame you if you use a touristic route for commuting,
and adding a tag tourism=yes doesn’t imply it can’t be used by every day

What the point? If you are a commuter you’ll focus on fast and safe route,
so you’ll prefer REVe Nord-Sud than Eurovelo 3 at this place
For instance, this information can be used for rendering map (like CyclOSM
on which I work) or routers (a tourist profile routing will prefer tourism
