I disagree for several reasons:
- the code handles already 3 out of four values and not one as you
- You have to duplicate and sync the lines for every file, which is
  known to be error prone, makes the style file unreadable and more
  complex than necessary.
- It's next to impossible to write style file rules for all cases,
  since you need to list all cases. We don't have the problem only
  with bicycle, but with all other access keys, too.
