[Tagging] Is there a good way to indicate "pushing bicycle not allowed here"?

Apart from the island parts of Venice, there is this "famous" example,
cited everytime the argument comes up: Bicycles, even walke, are not
allowed in the Schlosspark Nympenburg (see leaflet):
"Das Mitführen von Fahrrädern ist im ganzen Park nicht gestattet. Nutzen
Sie bitte das Angebot an Fahrradständern an den Eingängen."
It appears that we still have no commonly agreed tag in OSM to indicate
that type of restriction. OSM's "bicycle=no" is used to mean "riding of
bicycle is forbidden" or  "you cannot bring a bicycle here".
I agree we need a tag for a "hard" no-bicycle tag.
In theory we do have the bicycle=dismount tag for not-riding a bicycle,
but, unfortunately we do have too many existing uses bicycle=no in the
database that in reality should be bicycle=dismount
1?078?526 bicycle=no
79528 bicycle=dismount)
I do not like "explicit-no", but I do not have any alternative suggestion
either. bicycle=hard-no ? bicycle=prohibited ?

I guess there is a similar problem with dogs: there are places where you
cannot bring a dog, and there are places where you can not walk your dog,
but you may carry it.
