IMHO ways should be restricted to more like 256 nodes, and relations
should be unrestricted. I don't see how relations and ways should be
similar in this respect.

I can imagine a system that downloaded only part of a relationship, and
had abstract add/remove object X from relationship Y methods, but with
ways it seems much more complicated because of ordering.
