*I'll ask the question over on the routing list.  It does beg the more
basic question of...*

*Do we make the routing software smart, which has the risk of the software
making a wrong assumption/decision and giving the user an incorrect or
dangerous directive or do we make the routing software really dumb which
entails micro mapping every intersection to a ridiculous degree, which in
turn makes it  very hard to keep the map complete up-to-date and accurate.*

*A third option would be to ban all u-turns world wide :-)*
