This is a perfect reason for having two ways sharing nodes. Both may  
have different names and restrictions as you have found. If I remember  
correctly the Croydon Tramlink is mapped with a separate way for this  
reason. (It also in places jumps from running along the middle of the  
road  between the traffic flows to cross it and go on the other side  
of the road vehicles. There are a few bits where you can go with the  
tram and cycle, but not with other road vehicles).
