Please do not take it personally - I just toke your answer to hook on, 
because you agreed on "machines need to be told about these restrictions".

May be I am a bit on the devils advocates side here ... ;)

1. Where are there any restrictions? There is no solid line between the 
3 lanes. ;)
2. If you want to give the machine any advice, you should take 
3. "none|none|none;slight_right" does not give any advice for the both 
left lines - they still could be considered to take the exit.
Well in reality that is the legal situation here - you just have to take 
care for the traffic on the lines. ;)

But in this common case (standard single lane exit) I still do not see 
any necessarity for any advice to the maschine (or the driver), that if 
the route takes the right road one should use the rightmost lane ...
Same situation with solid lines definitely need case 2 - because even 
you should 'implicitly know' to take the rightmost lane there is another 
point where you already _have_ _to_ be on the rightmost lane - the 
maschine needs this advice to announce it appropriate.

But may be I am a bit too old and have driven too long with my own eyes 
and head - and without a navigation assistant. ;)
