Well, I can't stop you!

If I were someone wanting the National Byway to render right now, I'd tag it
as rcn, not ncn, because I believe "if it quacks like a duck, tag it like a
duck" and the quality and design of the National Byway is much more akin to
an old-style county cycleway (now generally Regional Routes) than to our
National Cycle Network.

If I were the guy who runs OpenCycleMap and was looking for a way to render
it without putting in NB-specific logic, I'd tweak the rendering rules to
show route=bicycle, without a network tag, in green (and move the MTB routes
to brown, because, well, it's mud and that).

But as I'm neither of those, you do what you like. And one of these days I
might get the magical extra hours to set up a renderer that does things the
_right_ way. ;)
