[Tagging] Proposed relation give_way

A good idea. Just thought I should mention the relation through_route, which is related to this, where the main road though a junction so that routers can give correct turn instructions, although none I know of support this.

Often the through route is not the straight ahead, so a turn is
often ignored by routers when joining or leaving via a road that has a give way.

Hi everyone!

I noticed that the proposal for a give_way type relationship [1] has been in draft for nine solid years. It seems a great solution to the current limitations of highway=give_way and highway=stop, also because it reuses a tagging scheme that is widely accepted both by mappers and by consumers for turn restrictions.  

I suggest that discussion on this proposal be revived. It should undergo the regular voting process and finally become an approved relation type. 

It may also be that it became a de facto standard in the meanwhile. Does somebody know of a router that uses this relation, possibly to provide navigation indications?
