this was about "conceptually impossible", there is nothing OSMAnd can do
about it.

It might use a "best guess" approach, but it isn't a defined modelling and
risks breaking any time because
a) someone might split the road at the node, so that there are 2 ways using
the node
b) someone might add a new way to the node
c) someone might reverse the way (and would likely not be notified about
nodes)

Cheers,
Martin
