I have the same problem with the right turn lane being removed from 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/52.11366/-1.94141 ... one can 
transition from the A46 to the A44 heading north WITHOUT having to stop 
for the roundabout. Because the only separation IS a crosshatch area the 
slip road has been removed but there is NOTHING to indicate that this 
slip road even exists by any other tagging! Unless someone has an 
'approved' way of adding it back?

Personally I think that micro-mapping complex junctions does require 
multiple ways even if the planned routes through a junction can be 
abused by taking the wrong path ...
