According to the wiki, highway=motorway* implies oneway=yes (meaning 
it's always oneway in the drawn direction), so you'd need a oneway tag 
to override this. But oneway=no is incorrect; oneway=reversible is a 
reasonable replacement when it's sometimes oneway=yes, sometimes 
oneway=-1, and maybe sometimes oneway=no. Other tags could then be used 
to indicate when it's oneway in which direction (if the times are fixed).
