If i understand the wiki page correctly,


would mean that on both lanes it isn't allowed to turn left onto the lane
of the oncoming traffic.

And for the case i misunderstand that tag, we can invent a new tag.
Splitting the road into two parallel ways isn't the only possible solution.

As Kevin already pointed out, there are many places without pedestrian
crossings. Therefore pedestrian routing wouldn't work where a road with
painted lane separation is mapped with two ways.

I wish you all a nice weekend
