The only currently accepted way-related roles in boundary relations are
'inner' and 'outer' (with 'enclave' and 'exclave' as deprecated variants).
Current boundary relations are also intended to map de facto borders based
on our on-the-ground principle.

Using 'dejure' or 'claimed' roles is currently just a suggestion and is
unused. Introducing this new role may break existing tools, especially
those that ignore the 'inner' and 'outer' roles and attempt to construct
the boundary using all member ways regardless of role.
