[Tagging] Large, multilane road tagging question

I have mapped some complicated intersections using links to represent turn lanes and other options in very large intersections. The links are connected exactly where they would logically connect one road to the other for each direction. 

Recently, I have been using Apple's turn by turn directions here in Japan (love it), and they seem to represent complicated intersections in a similar manner. 

Is there a philosophical or practical downside to representing a non- motorway in this manner? I am insure of how this effects the validity of the data, but for the current renderer, there seems to be no real visual issue, besides the arrows. 

Looking for feedback.
