For routing, it is important to know whether two ways meet at a
junction or whether they just pass over or under each other. This
topology requirement is solved by our nodes. If you drop nodes ("the
completely redundand id<->point assignment is removed"), how do you
suggest a routing engine should build its routing graph then?
