I don't have anything religious against unwayed segments :) - just a  
pretty fundamentalist belief in not complicating the UI, and (as a  
secondary consideration) keeping the SQL queries manageable.

If there's an easy way to make unwayed segments editable in a form  
that doesn't add anything to the learning curve for the newbie, and  
doesn't boggle the server, I'm all ears. (I would reiterate that  
Potlatch _isn't_ designed for the experienced OSM user and  
consequently I'd expect that pretty much everyone on this list will  
continue using JOSM.)

Until then I agree that fast-tracking an "incomplete" tag might be an  
excellent thing to do.
