Roads on the sides of hills very often have turns off the road that are
more then 120deg, even 150. The first example I can think of is:
http://osm.org/go/YeSTZ08Fj-- (from one of Port-au-Prince main roads, not
even a very steep hillside = ca. 125-130 deg turn coming downhill and
turning left to a bit of a drop-off but something that is a regular thing

I'm only starting to get into routing data issues but just thinking of this
logically it would seem to me as odd if we assumed something to be
forbidden globally based on a local rule -- without explicit data marking
the restriction.

Or am I missing something?
