And how to interpret the tag if the way is between two intersections ?
Surely not a good solution.

This is more country specific and will not solve many "give_way" cases
where there is no "priority road" signed.

A lot of new tags for only one feature, no ?

Only 15 relations are of type=priority in OSM ([1]). The type
"junction" is even more popular (although mainly contributed by the
same person).
