Would be kind of complicated i guess.

The point is that you have number 1..100 on a  way - you edit the range
from 50-60 and insert 5 nodes than you'll have 50-65 which will have an
overlap with the ones in the database (sequence wise) so the database/api
needs to reorganize sequence numbers of nodes you didnt edit. Id say -
very ugly ..
