no, it is IMHO not possible that a pass has no way that crosses it,
otherwise it wouldn't be a pass. If there is more then 1 one way I
guess you would have to tag all of them.

Maybe natural=pass (or mountain_pass) on a node might be more logical
for the feature if you bear in mind that the wiki suggests to tag ele
with it.
