I wouldn't put the width restriction to a node. Since you can't tell if this 
is a start or ending of this restriction. I would at least choose the segment 
for this. restriction. But I think it would be even better to make a short 
way which has this restriction as tags. This way you can assign two different 
restrictions on two ways containing the same segments. This would be for 
example needed if you have a tunnel with a car lane which has a height 
restriction of 3meters and in the pavement there are Tram Tracks which have a 
height restriction of 2 meters and a speed limit of xxKm/h.
