The history behind adding these values (and not just use "left" and 
"right") is explained here (when :lanes was proposed):

Short summary: It was not introduced for satnav purposes. There are 
links to examples which makes it more obvious that "left" and "right" is 
not sufficient to indicate the *lane* markings in all cases (also look 
at the non-standard arrows painted on the road).
