My statement applies, in my experience, also to ways. I haven't been
able to add duplicate ways to relations for a long time (it was possible
once but later disabled). It's been causing a lot of holes in the local
bus relations since some of them go from A to B, circle around a
neighbourhood until they return to B, and then go back to A. In some of
those cases, being able to add duplicate nodes is essential for the bus
route in OSM to reflect the actual one.
