I prefer the subkey :forward / :backward because then we save one pair of
key=value we can use to put the future unification of the meaning of
traffic signs groups.

while this might work often with stop signs it'll hardly work with maxspeed

For consistence , whit two ways with the same directions, which problem do
you have if the splitted way marks the direction...to the same direction so
is coherent between nodes and the two ways?

Using the :forward/backward scheme and with Kendzi3D I get the situation
very similar to reality as you can see in these pics, [1] and [2]. I can
map any traffic sign you have in any traffic law which have a code. People
like Mapillary do some classification we can "copy" or use/propose similar
in a future unification of the keys with meaning for traffic signs , fa
away than only city limit,
maxspeed/maxweight/maxheight/stop,give_way,traffic signal.
