It seems to me that the key attribute of the 'climbing lane' situation
that Dave mentions is that it's an additional lane. It's provided for
slow-moving vehicles, sure, but that's really a special case of the
near-universal convention that slow-moving traffic gives way to
overtaking traffic by moving to the outside (that is, in North
America, to the right). The difference, at least where I am, between a
climbing lane and another ordinary lane is a subtle one: you don't
have to move to the outside if nobody's trying to overtake, rather
than a "keep right except to pass" rule. You get 90% of the way there
by simply having the correct number of lanes:forward and
lanes:backward. Is adding a lane that much more complicated than
drawing a parallel way?

Here is another screen shot of the particular section of highway with a turnout on both sides of the road that I've been discussing (59.752103, -151.766395 ) with the ways removed for clarity: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nm6iahw9ch79tuh/slow_vehicle_turnout.jpg?dl=0
