[OSM-dev] Way as Relation

Maybe this is discussed before, but I want to know what the general
opinion is about it.

I wonder if we can skip a table of ways, and instead make it a relation.
And it would look as:

<relation id="77" visible="true" timestamp="2006-03-14T10:07:23+00:00" user="fred">
  <member type="relation" ref="343" role="from" />
  <member type="node" ref="911" role="at" />
  <member type="relation" ref="227" role="to" />
  <tag k="type" v="way"/>

Is there a reason not to implement it this way?
