This is pretty common in Germany that you have "shortcuts" around
traffic lights turning right. If tertiary or better those are
tagged with their appropriate *_link counterparts. We dont have those
for residential/unclassified. So there is no way to attribute them.

I think the *_link road types are inconsistent and should be deprecated
in favor of more accurate and universal attribution.
