        It is well established that oneway=yes means "in direction of
        the way" and oneway=-1 "in opposite direction than the way".

      To be clear, "oneway=yes" means <span class="moz-txt-underscore"><span
          class="moz-txt-tag">_</span>traffic<span class="moz-txt-tag">_</span></span>
      direction in the direction of the way, not <span
        class="moz-txt-underscore"><span class="moz-txt-tag">_</span>flow<span
          class="moz-txt-tag">_</span></span> direction.  In the case of
      waterways, these can be different.
      <br>
      <br>
      For waterways the <span class="moz-txt-underscore"><span
          class="moz-txt-tag">_</span>flow<span class="moz-txt-tag">_</span></span>
      direction is assumed to be in the direction of the way (and yes,
      this causes issues with some canals and drains).
      <br>
      <br>
      However as written the wiki page currently says
      "flow_direction=forward/backward/both" - it makes sense to me to
      avoid the word "oneway" to avoid confusion.
