I think we're fine with more than one solution, for a simple 4-way-stop
a node in the intersecting-node and direction=all should be enough for
data consumer.

Analog to this, a tag on the intersecting node of two streets with a
priority-to-the-right should be enough as well. I guess
'highway=give_way; give_way=right' or similar should be okay. If there's
a left-hand-country using this law in the opposite direction an analog
'highway=give_way; give_way=left' would be added.

But this neither allows many options to add nor to handle special
cases. So we need more.
