Adding node locations to ways is a pain (and needs more than 32 GB RAM these
days for a full planet if you want to get it done in reasonable time). So
I experimented with adding the node locations to the ways once and storing
it in the OSM files. Works for XML, PBF, and OPL. See my blog post at
https://blog.jochentopf.com/2016-04-20-node-locations-on-ways.html for the
full story.

Love to get your feedback.
