They are often allowed to ignore legal restrictions, but cannot
generally ignore physical restrictions, so it's an obvious example where
this distinction matters.

But before this discussion is completely transformed into a discussion
about what emergency vehicles are or are not allowed to do, let me offer
another example: realistic rendering, particularly 3D "virtual reality".
Physical separation and road markings look quite different  from each
other and should therefore also look different in that kind of rendering
- whether it is in, say, a virtual globe or maybe a road/lane assistant
type of application.
