What's the benefit? In josm there are less relation displayed, if you 
select the way. If you edit the way, you'll have to do the same things 
as there were 5 single relations and you additional have to analyse 
master relation before. In Potlatch and josm relation overview you'll 
get even more relations. Editing theses relations is even more 
complicated. So I think this solution wont make it better.
