To your first question: i have the impression that the "physical
division -> separate ways; no physical division -> shared way"
principle usually is followed. One situation where it is not always
followed are motorway exits divided only by road markings.

To your second question: i think that local mapping deviations make
our map less usable. I would prefer if people who think that a rule
doesn't make sense don't simply ignore it, but discuss it on this
global mailing list.
