I'm not convinced. IF there are subtle differences I find it desirable to
try to capture them. If there aren't (in jurisdiction), we don't have to
capture them, naturally.

It seems that "Anwohner frei" (old sign, not used any more, but can still
be found) and "Anlieger frei" as additional signs for access restrictions
do have the same meaning (read this in different places in the web,
apparently it is written in BayObLG, DAR 81, 18; OLG Düsseldorf NZV 92, 85,
which I found only behind a pay wall and have not read in the original).
"Anwohner frei" as a parking restriction should be replaced by "Bewohner

whether the routers do evaluate these rules specifically should not matter
to us. We should try to capture the reality, also in subtle details, so
that someone _could_ interpret the data precisely if he wanted to.

I agree that "destination" sh/could be the correct access restriction for
these cases, but it isn't well defined in the wiki at the moment.
