Motorway_link implies oneway=yes according to wiki 

In case it is not oneway=yes it is a mapping error not to tag it 
oneway=no. However, I see that this is a very easy mistake to make!

That would work mostly well I guess. However, it is better to fix 
mapping errors than try to adjust style for correcting them.
