For the Sydney metroads I have added directional route relations, that use
two directional relations for each metroad.  This allows the connectivity
of the route to be checked quickly during the reconstruction phase, and
otherwise does no harm.  When we have reached the next stage of maturity we
can decide if we want to merge them back into a single route relation with
directional elements.  So, yes, what you have done is correct.

That is correct.  See the Australian tagging guidelines in the wiki.

It can be part of both route relations.

Your change sets are still available. You should be able to at least refer
to the info you have added.  And yes, the loss of data in this way is the
hardest.  One person just traces from an aerial and then does not agree.
Others survey, add cycle facilities, names etc that are lost to OSM.  I
don't know if it still possible to better use some of this "unattached"
data in the database down the track.
