If mappers are permitted to create numerous new ways based solely on a painted surface, intersections will become completely choked with lanes and will become unmanageable.
In the given example, turns were already permitted prior to the additional superfluous lanes being added. This creates confusion and unnecessary clutter and should not be encouraged. The intersection was fine before the addition of the highway links. The new links add nothing to the map other than clutter.
