I would love to hear more from programmers of routing engines. My intuition
says that this level of "complication" is very low, but I could be wrong.

I'm also not sure that turns *are* "ofter restricted or prohibited". You're
saying that in a left-drive country, cyclists in a cycling lane/track can't
turn right in situations where motorists can? What do they have to do,
continue to the next intersection, then double back? I find this implausible
- why invest the money in a cycling track, then hobble cyclists like that?
