[Tagging] Lane dividers

Obviously we need some kind of tagging for lane dividers. Initially
when writing the :lanes proposal I though about reusing the divider
proposal: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Divider

But this has one serious drawback: if you have a road with four lanes
you would tag e.g. turn:lanes=left|through|through|right . That's four
lane-values. But if you want to tag the dividers you would need
divider:lanes=solid_line|dots|solid_lane . That's three lane-values.
In my opinion that's not a good idea - I would like to have the same
number of lane-values for all keys.

Now (a time ago) I came up with something different: have a look at
part 3 of the first example:

Please keep in mind that's just a first idea! What do you think?

about the destination tags ;-)
