In retrospect I really don’t know what the point of my question was. I certainly use route relations, and since ref is only really used for the renderer, I don’t know what I was thinking ref:forward and ref:backward would be useful for…

Short answer: No.

Long answer:  Get on board with road relations already.

Are ref:forward and ref:backward valid tags for use? Though only existing in short, isolated instances, there are many segments of road where a route only follows one direction of a way, and some where another route follows only the other direction, such as at a complex route junction. Are ref:forward and ref:backward an acceptable way to tag these situations, or is tagging it as a full concurrency and relying on relation roles the only way to go here?
