True, but sometimes it's hard to mark the node in the right position AND to
put it so that it is closer to one end than the other. Think of very short
ways, for example.

I'll say once again what is common to hear when discussing relations: it
should all be a matter of editors' support.

Don't confuse the give way sign with the stop sign. Stop requires the
driver to stop, even in Italy. Sure, many people don't, but that doesn't
mean they should :)
