I think this option should be removed. It does far less than what one 
can do using continue / continue with_actions (note not 
continue_with_actions sic!) and does less than what one would expect to 
be done (think of all the possible variations to indicate cycling 
allowed against the opposite flow of traffic like bicycle:oneway=no; 
oneway:bicycle=no; whereas cycleway=opposite does not actually indicate 
that one may cycle against the flow of traffic, could be just on the 
wrong side - better would be bicycle:oneway=no/yes plus cycleway:right 
and cycleway:left or cycleway:both (which all again do not tell their 
direction of traffic).
