Bit funny on re-reading, yes...
Idea is just that if you have ways A-->B, B-->C, D-->C then some people
would tag D-->C with role "backwards" so that it "matches" the others -
irrespective of the direction you want to traverse the route. But as it
was said at the workshop, clever software will turn around stuff to match.
