I'm not sure I understand this. We map HOV lanes and disallow routing on them currently. We used to use PLR to dissallow them. Now we can restrict them to only HOV vehicles which also disallow them.

Therefore they need to be completely restriction-free, and we rely on drivers to recognize that they may need to bypass it. Expect URs, but nothing we can do about that. By definition these will be limited access roadways, so they will always be Freeway. This is case (2b).
Case (2b) states:
Set segment restrictions for HOV "vehicle type" if applicable.
This would seem to me to always be applicable as we are talking about carpool, HOV and transit lanes. This would not then be completely restriction-free.

Again we would get that result by either restricting the roads to only HOV vehicles or making them parking lot roads. I don't see why the guidance going forward should not be to restrict them to only HOV vehicles.
