That is not something a routing enging can work with anyway
as there is no rule as to when this is oneway=true and when this it
Usually is does not matter anyway as it's just one lane and there are free
lanes for each direction at all times. So routing is not affected.
(I route on streets, not lanes.)
Even if the road is completely closed for your direction...well..
then you will have to calculate a different route. An inconvenience
caused by seldom, undocumented values in the map.

Do you have a schema to describe these that is in actual use?
Then please document it.
