Until you gave that example, I thought you made some fair points.  Now I do
not think so.

I couldn't make sense of what was going on.  I couldn't tell how to access
those parking
spaces or how they connected to the road network.  I had to switch to the
editor before
any of it made sense to me, and then what I saw from reality didn't match
up with what
the rendering showed me.

The result of doing it your way is FAR worse than I thought it would be.
You're nit-picking
about minor problems that might be faced by autonomous vehicles parking
slightly in the
road and giving the major problem that many spaces accessible directly from
the north
carriage of Circonvallazione Ostiense appear to be only indirectly
accessible from the
south carriage of Circonvallazione Ostiense via a twisted route of parking

Before that example I thought your way of doing it was sub-optimal.  Now I
see it as being
badly wrong.  I don't think we'll ever agree on this one.
