I'm sorry, I realized I got the use count comparison wrong because I
included the non-lane-specific embedded_rails tags.

* embedded_rails:lanes plus embedded_rails:lanes:both_ways plus
embedded_rails:lanes:backward plus embedded_rails:lanes:forward is
used 610 times

* tram:lanes plus tram:lanes:forward plus tram:lanes:backward is used
1035 times - so more

I've not really seen tram:lanes tagging before, how is it used?

Looks like a substantial amount of the uses is tram:lanes:forward=yes
(364 uses) and tram:lanes:backward=yes (317) - mostly on two-lane
streets in Helsinki? tram:lanes:forward=designated|none would indeed
fit that schema.
