Perhaps, but then data consumers have to figure how how many cars are
supposed to be side by side.  That number really is local convention;
one road I use is really not wide enough for 2, but people always do it.
So I favor using the lanes tag to specify how many lanes are actually
typically in use.  Then with width one can get the average width of
those.
