There are other reasons why JOSM and its plugins should ideally have
access to the driving_side (implicit or explicit) of each way anyway.
Other functionality affected by it includes the Lanes Details style
and the Turn Lanes plugin.

And this functionality is not made easier by the new value. Introducing
a value just for the sake of one test case within a subset of the
available validators isn't worth it imo, especially as it only detects
unnecessary rather than wrong data.
