I use virtual=yes for roads (in the broader sense) that don't exist physically, but are there to join road networks. For example, consider a road with sidewalks and a pedestrian footway that connects to the sidewalk. Since the road way will be placed in the middle of the road, but the footway is obviously connected to the sidewalk, there's a portion of the road that doesn't actually exist, and is due to the fact that roads are not lines. This is my solution to the question I asked on OSM Help : How do I tag a way that is used by routing but doesn't really exist?
