The fact that double yellow means "crossing the centerline markings
for passing is prohibited" and not "crossing the centerline markings
is prohibited" is quite significant.

You can, if it is safe and not otherwise prohibited, make a left turn
across a double yellow.  You can, if it is safe and not otherwise
prohibited, make a U-turn across a double yellow.

The only sense in which a double yellow prevents crossing "if there
are no intersections nearby", is if any place where someone might turn
is called an intersection.
