To me signs have nothing to do with infrastructure. For me the infrastructure 
are the roads themselves. So to me a cycleroute is a moving vehicle route.

From this follows that introducing "line" relations is not consistent at all, 
because then we have a different type of relation for public transport moving 
vehicle routes and private transport moving vehicle routes.
