Why would it be any more difficult than using areas, if the editors
display the data correctly then you can edit it correctly too.

Nodes are the perfect point to do it, they are the 2D location, ways
give you direction, nodes give you width.

You are assuming we are using the same tools we are using now to do
stuff, if the editors become smart enough to enter width information
they can display it as well.

The rest I'll come back to, don't have time this second to give you a
proper answer.
