I don't agree here.
Mapping two different features with one OSM object shouldn't be done,
especially for a pipeline vs a street

Both don't have the same location (one underground, one IS the ground).
Both don't have the same shape (such a pipeline can cross the street many
times, how would you represent this ?).

... they don't share many properties.

Editing software should adapt to such issues, not the DB.

Then :

name=West 4
