In this
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dmotorway#How_to_map>
section, I suggest changing the text:
"These ways should all point direction of travel and be tagged with
oneway=yes."

to

"These ways should all point direction of travel and imply oneway=yes
(like junction=roundabout), therefore the oneway tag is redundant and
should be avoided."
