Like putting a way down the middle of each lane and then tieing that
back to the road, or like just adding a lane:n:feature = value to the
existing road way? Then you could do something like lane:0:restriction

That might be good for those cases, but I was thinking on a smaller
scale where you have a 50m road that for the first 20m has maxspeed 20
and the last 80m as maxspeed 30. This doesn't really seem like a
"route" to me. Becides the point I was trying to make was anything can
be split ...roads, parks, rivers... in order to apply these secondary
tags (like surface) to shorter segments. Since in all these cases you
are doing the same thing the same approach should be used, hence the
relation used to join the road segments shouldn't be any different to
the relation used to join park or parking lot segments.
