This could be done easily with JOSM :

- select 2 ways, a secondary and a primary one
- JOSM display "highway:<different>"
- modify the highway tag two have both way primary
- clic upload

Only one way is really modified, but JOSM will upload the both.

In some occasion, this could result in massive upload of unmodified 
objects. (for example if you select a whole area to find and remove a 
few bogus tag...)
