But that even more overloads the highway road class/type.

Id rather stay with tagging the road on the intersection with the
road class of the through road and then (as the link types) tag them like


A Motorway ramp would be like link=ramp highway=motorway. A road
passing/cutting traffic light could be link=cut or something.

I dont really care on visual representation - I think this is a
completely different problem. I am more concerned about routing
and more especially on hinting the Text to Speech engines. We want
precise and few instructions.
