[OSM-talk] Ways, boulevards, divided highways

With the new support for ways, some questions have come up in my mind

Are ways supposed to represent entire roads, or just sections of roads?
 If they're supposed to represent entire roads, what about instances
where multiple road names share the same physical piece of road?

On a different note, what's the "correct" way to handle boulevards,
divided highways, 4-lane roads, and transitions among them?  Should they
be 2 lines each or one?  My thought is, 1 line for each of the above
except divided highways, which should get 1 line per direction.

Is this the consensus on the list?
