[Tagging] give way and stop tag for ways

My understanding is that a give_way node on a way should be placed such 
that it is closer to the relevant intersection than it is to any other 
intersection of that way. Thus, as long as you can work out (from this 
proximity) which intersection it relates to, you have all the 
information you need to handle it properly: it applies to traffic 
passing that node heading towards the relevant intersection.
