Still not convinced. Why would you want to add every single node of a way to
a relation rather than the way itself?
Problem with OSM data model is that it merges 2 different concepts
(linestring nodes and POI) into 1 object (a node).

For me, a node being both a linestring node and a POI should be an
exception, so I hardly see a way full of POIs (and I'm convinced only POIs
should be added to relations)

Could be awkward, but it's way to go (or rather move the entire way, then
adjust the needed nodes).

Good point. Will look into that.
