I'd rather keep that key solely for cases of "legal" priority of one direction
on the road segment in question. Both might effectively slow you down, but
in the "legal" case driving there is a different from "just slow" red
light crawl.

There have been some proposals in the past in the wiki for various
approaches to recording the fact that the delays are higher than could
be normally expected, but I'm not aware of any of them ever having
gained any support.
