But think *why* this is; I presume osmarender is fed the million nodes 
because it intersects that way. There are situations where this can 
happen in real life even when partial ways are implemented, for example 
zooming out to world view.

This is a scenario your renderer must solve; because the renderer knows 
its precision for that render, not the data provider. A typical editor 
is already limited in what it can 'fetch'. In my previous mails you can 
find the other arguments that make more sense as resolution.
