Thanks all for the response!

I think this sign should be handled along with the other priority signs:
Fact, that this particular sign can be defined without any additional
member, just like Tag:highway=traffic_signals
(higway=stop, and highway=give_way have to have members -

Yes, equal roads are the default behavior of an intersection - but this can
be very tricky in the city where are just a few equal road among many
priority ones.
