yes, at least we could _recommend_ to not use true or 1 any more in
the wiki. It is really pointless to encourage mappers to use any of
those three when in the end it will create trouble and effort for data
consumers without any benefit for the mappers. Of course there will
remain -1 to indicate the opposite direction in oneway streets.
