You need turn restrictions very often anyway to represent legal
restrictions, and this is just another case. You'd split the way at the
node, add both ways as members (from and to role) and the node with role
"via", add the kind of restriction, done. IMHO this is the correct solution.

a node still doesn't have a direction, the node could also be the end of
more than one way, or there could be more ways going into the node, all of
which would make the situation unclear, and all of which can also happen in
the future. Advocating tagging a node would require all future map editors
to take care about the tagging of all nodes when reversing the direction of
a way or of the connecting nodes when simply adding ways. I'd discourage
this tagging (and, semantically it doesn't make sense anyway).

this depends of course of the exact sign and its meaning. I had asumed you
wrote about this sign:
but now have seen that it is an explicit motorcar sign, so yes,
oneway:motorcar=yes (on a tiny piece of way).
