For the same reasons why the first OSM api had "segments" and was
replaced by  "ways". It makes editing and maintenance painful, you
don't see where your street is starting and finishing. Relations using
the street will contain only a segment of it. The data become
unreadable for humans.
The same complain was said about splitting ways for routes, something
that does not correspond to any thing on the physical world. And they
are also alternative solutions for that.
