I know that the German mappers have decided that "trunk" is a handy
extra road category that can be used for Schnellstraßen. I also know
that other countries find it a useful classification for similar
purposes. But the country whose road system gave us the "trunk" tag
has thousands of km of standard single-carriageway road that bears the
tag. I would assume that oneway sections are in the minority in the
UK. In Ireland they certainly are.

I can't argue with your conclusion, though - I always explicitly tag
oneway where it applies. Usually even on roundabouts :P
