Hm, I always thought about them as a strange differentiation. While a lot of
cycleways in urban areas are plain cyclyways, most of them are not in rural

What you can find very frequently at least here in Germany is a combination
of agricultural service-ways with cycle/footways.

I strongly believe that these ways should be marked as cycleway in whatever

Many of these Problems would IMO be resolvable by a general additional layer
which enables us to add stuff like "foobar-cyleway" on top of existing ways,
whatever type they may already have.
