I would have expected this to work:
The no-way is a direction.

Can anybody explain why?
I’m sure there is another way, but as a last resort I guess you could replace Section SR1/4 - Directions in the Standard Rules with something appropriate to your needs.
Would this do? Or will it lead to horrible bugs?

[The north has opposite south.] Understand “n” as north.
[The northeast has opposite southwest.] Understand “ne” as northeast.
[The northwest has opposite southeast.] Understand “nw” as northwest.
[The south has opposite north.] Understand “s” as south.
[The southeast has opposite northwest.] Understand “se” as southeast.
[The southwest has opposite northeast.] Understand “sw” as southwest.
[The east has opposite west.] Understand “e” as east.

[Up has opposite down.] Understand “u” as up.
[Down has opposite up.] Understand “d” as down.
[Inside has opposite outside.] Understand “in” as inside.

The inside object translates into I6 as “in_obj”.
The outside object translates into I6 as “out_obj”.
