I can't see the signposting of the routes in the videos, I assume because I don't know where to look? 

> 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 cyclists.
> 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 https://www.cyclosm.org/#map=18/48.86796/2.35391/cyclosm 
> 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 route).

(just playing devil's advocate)
Wouldn't renderers and routers prefer road attributes?
