For this, as well as my take on this
<https://social.tulsa.ok.us/@BalooUriza/104661151452635456>, is why I'm
also a hard no on this.  This is a solution looking for a problem that will
only create a bigger series of problems.  We already have bigger problems,
like making lanes=* actually pass on the ground verifiability in situations
where there's bicycle or motorcycle lanes.  Or killing ref=* on ways as a
method of describing road routes in favor of relations.
