1) If you do it like that and any validation finds gaps on both ends of 
a member way with this role, it's impossible to say which one is 
intentional and which is not (or if both are intentional).
2) using the role for this creates conflicts if e.g. the way in fact has 
already a role like forward or backward for example.

right. but currently nodes aren't sorted anyway at least in JOSM, so 
that's a basic problem that should be solved, I think.
