It would be interesting to see newbies interact with the more complex
mapping situations, where relations are present (of the types
turn_restriction, multipolygon, route and maybe site). Will the relations
break, or do the mappers hesitate to modify complex situations? Can our
current tools make them aware about what is in OSM and evventually warn if
there is risk of damaging this "more abstract" data or maybe handle it
transparently so that they can edit without damage and without being aware
for the relations?
