As long as there is no physical separation you should use the :lanes
system and only use separate ways for the individual booths.

Well, as long as the renderer do not respect width=* or lanes=* people
will experiment and rendering is not the only purpose. You can do quite
a lot more things with a geodata base.

I do not want to tag for the renderer (e.g. I do not add area=yes on any
multipolygon and closed ways which make no sense to not be interpreted
as area). I even did open a bug report about it against carto only to
have it closed as "other software".
