I found a similar problem with u-turns while investigating a mapdust bug.

Not wrong, u turns are allowed for vehicles under 7.5 tonnes, but not sensible either. 

My commercial satnav told me to do a u turn here, http://bit.ly/HBOoJv, I didn't.

I don't agree.

First, if you're on the same way, you're not turning, but going
straight and following the road. In the case of the OP, I expect to
see three ways, two of which tagged oneway=yes.

Second, if you turn more than 180 degrees, you're hopefully going on a
bridge ;-)

Third, think of a situation like this: http://osm.org/go/0CKuMhs89-
Suppose that the tertiary has to be split at the junction for any
reason (a relation needs only a part of it, or the surface changes, or
the incline changes, whatever). Also suppose that the tertiary is
oneway=yes. You would end up with two ways with the same name, both
oneway=yes, with an acute angle between them and a third way exiting
from the junction. Would you, as a router, ban the prosecution on the
