no. this is not about rendering. It is about the preferences in
mapping: more or less abstract. The abstract solution might be better
in simple cases, but if e.g. different turning restrictions apply it
is much more complicated IMHO.

It is according to the basic concept to model distinct ways in osm for
separate ways in the real world.
