It ought to be possible to use hierarchy in those relations. That way you
would map them at the national level and group them for the international

Same for that route that is mtb/hiking/horse. 1 route containing the ways,
then reuse for the other 2. At the moment I would tag that one with 3
separate reltations, but JOSM might complain you have relations with the
same members.
