[OSM-newbies] Splitting streets into one ways--too much?

First, my apologies for misunderstanding the situation. I should have
looked closer at the Bing imagery - I didn't see the medians.

If anyone made that argument I would vigorously point out that:
a) "don't tag for the renderer" is a guideline applied in specific
circumstances, not an axiom.
b) when *every* renderer behaves a certain way, it's not "tagging for
the renderer", it's "tagging for renderers", or in common language,
c) the "don't tag for the renderer" guideline applies in situations
where it's likely that support for more appropriate tags will be added
in the foreseeable future. We're a long way from that point with this
kind of sub-road-level stuff.

But once again, my bad, sorry for creating noise.
