There is also a proposal for a relation to unify dual carriageways
(e.g. often pedestrians can cross but cars can't, dependent on the
kind of divider) which also allows for tagging of the divider (either
implicitly or explicitly):

how would the data consumer know, where the lanes are? E.g. a lane to
turn left might also be right of the through-lanes, and this is
crucial for routers to give good indications.
