Also highway/railway=crossing.

The highway=ford tag depends on at least two parent ways.

The traffic_calming tags mostly depend on ways to be fully defined.

However, none of them, as far as I know, depend on the *direction* of the
way on which they are defined.

Now, arguably, I don't really know that "incline" as applied to a node is
meant to be directional in the first place.  The information is useful
regardless of direction, though it's of course more useful if a direction is
also included.
