If you have an old very inaccurate way (let's say the first entered
primary streets here in Germany) and you want to change that to the GPS
track you have. You have to switch dozens of times between S and A to
create nodes, drag them, create more, check them, ...

Actually this is the same. Or where do you see the difference between
modeless and everything can be done in one mode.
Only 1 more step:
- Implement drawing ways in select mode and Add is no longer required and
you have modeless editing. Start drawing mode using a key and ESC to
stop is probably the best way to do this. Is C like "C"reate already
Should be relatively easy.
