Different colours for different types of local cycle network

route=lcn is used for a mixture of types of cycle routes, which is confusing. It would be better to differentiate.

The Dutch cycle infrastructure guidance distinguishes 5 types of cycle route, of which 2 map to ncn/rcn, and the remaining 3 to lcn. The 3 are: leisure cycle tours, urban main routes and urban subsidiary routes. I would suggest rendering route=tcn in a different colour (for touring routes) and route=lcn2 as a lesser version of route=lcn (for urban subsidiary routes).

UK cycle infrastructure guidance also allows for a distinction between routes on main roads and quiet routes, as appealing to different types of cyclist. I would suggest a different colour for route=mcn (for main road cycle routes).

Would this be any different from recolouring (or otherwise highlighting) which points of the local cycle network are on main roads?
