There's nothing wrong with that. It's mapped accurately as individual 
lanes & clarified with the lanes=* tag.

All elements are "tagged for the renderer" How else would they know how 
to render them? What shouldn't be done is tagging incorrectly to get it 
to render, such as labelling a golf bunker as a beach to get it to 
appear yellow. I'm surprised someone with your OSM experience needs to 
be reminded of this.
