And I'd like JOSM to highlight places where an admin boundary runs 100% 
parallel to a road so I can merge them ;-)

Jokes aside, *please* use relations for admin boundaries and then simply 
make the road a member in your relation. There is no need to draw an 
extra line tagged admin boundary if the boundary is the road.
