Autopilot Idea: Utilize GPS+Map to anticipate lane curves/exits

Alot of reviews mention how some curves or exits cause the autopilot to lose track of the road. Why don't they incorporate GPS & Maps to anticipate if you are approaching a road curve or an exit?

For example if it knows you are in the 2nd lane from the right side and the map shows a 2 lane exit soon, then it should anticipate that your lane will split and use the left side lane marker to stay straight (even if the car in front exits), unless you intervene or have navigation set to a destination that requires using the exit; alternatively, maybe it can ask you which way you intend to go beforehand!

Your idea is so good that Tesla thought the same thing when they started Autopilot development over a year ago! (Read the other threads, this was discussed in Elon's presentation to the press today).
