I have to strongly disagree. Consider an intersection of dual
carriageways (so, four intersection nodes) where signals are tagged on
the intersection nodes. Please explain how a tool is supposed to
determine whether a vehicle passing "straight through" the intersection
will encounter one or two signals.
Now take that same intersection and plop it into a dense urban area
where there really *are* four separate intersections and explain how the
same tool is supposed to know when that's the case.
