OR .. you could place each node of the separate features close together 
with a fixme tag on them ...
This way you don't need two systems for tagging the same thing. And it 
makes it easier for a mapper to move them to the correct location when 
they are found. And it conveys the information and being spacialy close 
they indicate that the loctions are not absolutely correct. ANd the 
renders don't need to recognise two different systems for the same thing.
