FWIW, there was another short discussion (in addition to the one you
refer to) and some tags were proposed:

It would be nice to have a single approach for both methods. I think
having these nodes on the cycleways/highways could make them easier to
implement in routers. In case of cycleway*=* (lanes/tracks), the side of
the road on which the rail is set (or, perhaps, the lane/track
direction), should be described as well.
