That's logical but not particularly useful.  Around here there are a lot of
minor roads.  Some of
them are only wide enough for one vehicle, so are unmarked.  By your logic
that's lanes=0.
Some of them are wide enough for two vehicles, but still unmarked.  By your
logic that's
also lanes=0.  For many of us, it's nice to know if an unmarked road is
only wide enough
for one vehicle (so you might have to back up to a passing place one or
more times) or
wide enough for two vehicles.  The presence or absence of marking can
really only be
used to infer the presence or absence of marking and nothing more.
