Can we please first define a solution (e.g. a relation) for connecting
such separately mapped components of a road to the highway?

Painting lines next to each other fails to express the important
information that this kerb/sidewalk/cycleway is part of that highway
over there. Such missing information may be easily guessed by a human
viewer, but it's currently not available in a machine-readable form.

This fundamental limitation really needs to be addressed before we
consider splitting roads into even more parallel ways.
