I would be in favor of adding the possibility to tag highway=passing_place
on ways, there is already a tiny fraction tagged on ways (although the
percentage currently makes it clear they are outliers). There's a general
problem with using nodes for features like these: they don't have a
direction, so you can't state where the widening takes place.

For the lanes approach: I would only use this if the place has some length
(more than 5-10 meters you may typically find on a track) AND if there are
lane markings (general requirement for lanes).
