+1  I always add foot and bicycle values and I never rely hidden
assumptions.  Without a certain amount of redundantencies, all this is
OSM tagging is much too fragile.  Thus I often add bicycle=yes to
highway=cycleway; it happens once in a while that you change "cycleway"
to "footway" and forget to add the bicycle=yes tag...

Also in Germany, the majority of cycleways are allowed for pedestrians.
Z237 without an additional sign such occurs less often than Z240 or
Z241 (though Z241 signals a bicycle only lane, but in reality this des
not actually work ;) ):
