I today got the following response by joedalton85 (tags a lot of motorways
in France):

pour ma part, je prefere mettre les _link dés qu'elle commence ou
finnissent pour plusieurs raisons.

   - Ca permet d'avoir une longueur de voirie plus proche de la réalité
   - Ca permet d'avoir une occupation du sol plus proche de la réalité
   - Ca permet au GPS de prevenir " prenez à droite" au bon moment
   - En france on doit se tourner à droite des que possible

Translated (and based on viewing some of joedalton's edits):

For my part, I prefer to put the _link where the deceleration lane starts
or where the acceleration lane finishes for several reasons.

   - a long road is closer to reality
   - It provides a land closer to reality
   - It allows the GPS to show "turn right" at the right time
   - In France one must turn to the right when possible.

(translations welcome, both French and English are not my native language)
