This doesn't mean that future navigators shouldn't.

Don't mix routing with navigating.

Also the decision to stop because a traffic light is red. Also the decision
to stop because there's a queue. This doesn't make it pointless to signal
that there is a traffic light ahead, or that queues may be possible
(there's even a road sign for that).
