This seemed like a decent idea to me, since I'd prefer not to be breaking the law when I cross a red light. But in both of the examples the lights are in places where bicycles don't cross lanes of car traffic. ...so of course they should be allowed to proceed. France doesn't allow turning right on red for cars, so this does make a bit more sense in that context. But it isn't much like the Idaho stop at all.

FWIW, I have a friend who describes the Idaho stop light law (proceed safely after full stop on red) for bicycles as being similar in spirit to allowing right on red after a full stop for cars.
