Granted, this does raise issues.  Besides the fact that oneway=yes on
a barrier=gate is not well defined, there isn't, to my knowledge, a
way to distinguish "requires code or clicker which is given to
residents" from "only accessible by maintenance personnel (and
possibly emergency services)".  And both seem to me to be a somewhat
common situation.
