That's not possible currently, though I have been thinking about how
to implement this. What I was wondering was the concept of "layer"
where is a layer is defined by a number of properties, and at any time
you can only select and manipulate objects in the active layer.

Layer is a bad name, since an object can be in multiple layers.

In any case, you could have mode where you can select only ways, only
nodes, only segment, only ways where natural is not "coastline", that
kind of thing. It wouldn't be that easy to implement, but is that sort
of what you're thinking of?

Have a nice day,
