Relations should be a worldwide thing anyway.  Even in Europe, you have the
E roads and the I roads, IIRC.  Heck, even in Arizona which *never* has
signed multiplexes, relations still add value and reduce maintenance
pains.  It would also resolve issues in Oregon, which has state highways
and state routes with different numbers, with the highway being a property
of the way, and the route being a route that may cross more than one
highway or have a completely different number.
