Yes, that's the standard operating procedure around here, albeit perhaps
with an added "easy" before movements. For example, if there's a small
raised curb with a little grass strip, it is still something you can
cross with your car or bike but it would be enough to make two separate
ways, whereas a simple line would not.

Way separation is not about the legal aspect ("do not cross this line")
but about the physical.
