Currently we have automatic relation creation only for the "areas with
holes" type of way. Other ways with branches or non-contiguous parts
are split without creating a relation.
It could be done but I'd rather not - I would prefer that people think
of a good way to use relations to group ways, play around with that,
"evolve" a good solution, instead of us creating a precedent for
"superways" that everyone is bound to follow.
