we could use a relation to avoid overlapping ways, something for linear
features, and maybe also something for nodes (e.g. different traffic signs
on the same pole). Using multivalues
There is already a proposal for these:
The line relation might be expressed as a route (e.g. route=barrier), but
it would be better to allow for non-continuous ways as well (often bigger
barriers tend to have bifurcations and deadends, e.g. the chinese wall).
