Kicking around the idea of formally proposing "nolanes=yes" in #OpenStreetMap. Granted, this is probably going to be North America centric (and countries that have largely similar rules). As such, the following two assumptions are in play: Lanes continue through the "box" (regardless of actual geometry) of the intersection where they are not marked, and outside of intersections, where no lanes are marked, you just drive wherever on the right half of the road.
