The problem is that the mapper sees 'shared street' and does not know 
how to map that in OSM speak .. that is where the Australian guide lines 
to translate OZie into OSM ...
or to give hints for international phone numbers to use in OSM .. we 
don't get much practice at that unlike the Europeans.

For detailing what a 'shared street' is for OSM then the living street 
page has a table where the Australian peculiarities can be stated.
