Just to be clear: I agree with Martin Koppenhoefer on splitting the ways
only if there is a physical division. However, for the sake of geometry, I
prefer to anticipate the split a bit, which is why I would put the split in
section 5 or maybe even earlier - the actual position depends on how long
section 5 is and how harsh the split is.
