Well, that's just the driver's guide, not the WA law itself, so it's only meant to be descriptive. I hope you're right about what it means! It gets messy, though, with decisions like that judge in Portland a year or so back that ruled against a right-hooked cyclist because the bike lane stripe stopped at the intersection, hence the bike lane itself stopped. Now, I don't agree with that judge but if you take his interpretation literally, the car that did the right-hook didn't actually drive in the bike lane since the bike lane (by his interpretation) had stopped.
