If cycling is usually allowed on trunk roads in .uk then you should make 
an effort to persuade the author to reflect that in his code. (It seems 
he's from Germany, where we normally use highway=trunk for a type of 
road that is closed to bicycles.) If, however, that would lead to you 
having to add "bicycle=no" to 95% of trunk roads then maybe it is better 
proceed as you have planned.
