You're absolutely right with this. And I actually didn't know/consider it.

It wasn't clear to me. Perhaps this should be added to the swiss map
features. I also think that there are a lot of wrongly tagged ways out
there in that case. Those blue signs are quite scarce, except in
parallel to some bigger streets. But I see lots of cycle and foot ways
on their own. I don't know if this issue has been discussed already. For
example in my area there are a few non-numbered cycle routes (just
marked with the destinations) And I found it quite nice when those were
tagged as cycleway, because they are drawn differently on the map.

Well I wouldn't care too much in the case, that only ways signaled with
those blue signs should be tagged as cycle/foot ways, because they
usually only appear in parallel to some bigger road. And, quite
frequently, pedestrians share the cycleway. How about this: we will tag
it also as a cycle way, if it is shared use like 2.63. If it is no
shared use, tag it with foot=no. Because the shared use is more frequent
for all I know.
But if this site should reflect the actually used tagging, then it
definitely should say yes to pedestrians and horses on cycleways.

Grüsse, yours
