>Only part 5 is relevant.
Having just returned from my (mapping) trip, and having finally
browsed through all these messages on this subjet, I don't think
anybody mentioned it explicitly: You can't consider only part 5.
At part 6, the ways are physically separated, so IMO there
should be two separate nodes on the 5 - 6 border. With two
nodes there, the transition from one way (part 4) two two ways
happens during part 5. Often, but not always, before the
physical separation begins, the solid line is of convenient length
for said transition.

Depending on the length of part 5, fully b, or if it's a really long
part, first as one way, and as two ways from the point where one
or both of those ways' angles match the angles of the ways in
part 6. Where I'd draft the definition of "match" as "equals, or
makes a bit shallower or a bit steeper angle with the orientation
of the part 5 carriageway"; this is to say "no abrupt right-left-curves,
but don't do separate ways at the start of a long decelaration lane
