That's always the problem in OSM:
Is it meant as a "physical" tag or as an "intenionally" tag?
I would appreciate it, if we can reserve such general tags like "lanes"
for general physical description and describe intentionally tags with
their precise intention.
lanes=4 physically all lanes
So I second Anthony.
