[Tagging] lanes = 0

So there are lanes and virtual lanes.
We must make a good distinction, I must be able to see immediately, whether I am dealing with a marked lane or a virtual lane, that has no marking.
Do not expect from a mapper, at a marked lane, also to set marked = yes. (or else) to make the distinction.
See wikipedia and else, there all marked.
A two-way road without a marking in our country, does not have lanes! (law). Although, you can pass each other. There, we could have also a new tagcombination! But not lanes=* , these are marked! (law)
To make a good distinction, it must be immediately clear.
What do you think of:
lanes: virtual = (number), lanes that have no markings. Not a second tag needed.
The same method as there is used highway: virtual = pedestrian, to make a route line over a pedestrian area. Or over a field, a beach.
You could say, lanes are created in the UK, lanes are created in OSM, these lanes where written down as marked lanes, to use lanes=* for virtual lanes was a abuse of the tag lanes=* , if you do use it, you make the definition unclear and that should be avoided, there is a new tag needed.
In Spain is easy: when there is no marks = lanes=1
Also when they are a passable, two way road?
When there are no marking there are no lanes.
lanes=1, like on a highway link, is indicating one way, one direction.
A lot of lanes=1 are deleted in our country, because they are not a lane (rijstrook)(law).
