these have different meaning. highway=* area=yes is used for
omnidirectional traffic areas, i.e. there is no given direction and you can
drive/walk however you like. When mapping a road as area (typically
additionally because the center line is needed for routing etc.) you should
use area:highway which can be used also for directional streets.
