I hope the next version of Map Features that Andy is working on will have a
more structured approach to this problem.
There should be a base level of tags that describe simple atomic attributes,
like oneway=yes, lanes=3, car=yes, bicycle=no and then additional higher
level tags that are short-cut definitions of a group of atomic tags. So
highway=fr:motorway would be explicitly and formally defined (in an xml
document) as being equivalent to surface=tarmac, lanes=3, hardshoulder=yes,
bicycle=no, car=yes, speedlimit=120km, speedlimit:rain=100km, etc.
If someone makes a transformer that converts highway=motorway into its
constituent parts then routing software can just look for oneway=yes and
doesn't need to know how the French administration have arbitrarily defined
