They aren't so bad - we just need to stop thinking of them as infrastructure and start thinking of them as route markings. Some roads don't have the speed or traffic to justify poured-conrete infrastructure - a great example is Shaw Street in Toronto. As long as we aren't pretending that sharrows do anything to actually protect a cyclist, I don't see them as problematic.

The issue with using them on Bay South is that the road is wide enough that if the parking spaces are mostly empty, there won't be any natural speed control. Bumpouts could be used to solve this problem very cheaply.
