In some rare cases you might need to use relations. Please check this proposal, where some strange cases were highlighted. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/lanes_General_Extension/ProposalPreVoting#Lane_connectivity Here is an example of a simple crossing which incorporates 15 turnlanes:turn relations: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/199483223 The problem with that is not the tagging but the maintenance.

When looking at this segment, one will understand that there are reasons for the wider usage of the *:lanes scheme. First: It is human readable. Second: It is simply extendable with common tags and therefore it it much more versatile as this aged zombie proposal. And by the way, simply counting relations and ways is like trying to compare of apples with oranges http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/361770445

As mentioned before, there is already an approved way to map turnlanes in osm. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:turn:lanes This scheme is also supported by osmand and mapfactor since some time.

Hallo 4gruwe,
wäre echt schade einen so aktiven Mapper in direkter Nachbarschaft zu verlieren.
Falls du dich an meinen Edits gestört haben solltest könnten wir das auch vor Ort klären.
