[Tagging] give way and stop tag for ways

Think about oneway tag.
That is a property of a way.
So as a routing app I just would like to examine this tag, and forget the
relations restrictions:
Because it is a redundancy - if the oneway tag used properly the routing
app can determine whether you can turn right in an intersection or not. In
other words - if someone missed defining the road signs at intersections
(eg, restriction=no_left_turn) then this does not mean that you can turn

So I would prefer to create such tags for priority cases - which can be
assigned to ways

Thanks, Balazs
