I think of a lane added on the nearside (kerb side) of the road for slow
vehicles going uphill as a "crawler lane", and to me "passing place" is
meant for waiting for oncoming traffic to pass on a road too narrow for
two-way simultaneous use (and is typically short enough to represent with a
node).  I think what Dave describes is closest to a crawler lane.
