I think some discretion here is required.  I've tagged Wilson St in Newtown
this way, because the design and usage of the road is such that it is
shared.  It has features that the neighbouring residential roads don't, and
it is one of Sydney's cycle-streets.  I think in Sydney it needs more than
just bicycle sign in the middle of the road to make it cycleway=shared_lane.

I noticed some others tagging roads with bicycle stencils as bicycle=yes
(even though this is the default).
