Look at Nederland on waymarkedtrails, hiking tab and bicycle tab, to see this is already working. In the information text they explain how they handle the hierarchy.

> "Definition"
> Bike routes are represented on OpenStreetMap as relations. There are many
> official routes that are already present in the base, and more will come.
> They can represent different types of itineraries: local, regional, national
> and even international.
> That said, international routes are often based partly on national routes,
> which in turn are based on regional / local routes. Sometimes the regional
> ones are based on the locals. Clearly, with the system of flat relations, at
> least up to 4 itineraries can share the same physical path. In case of
> modification of this path (for example, a new 2-km cycleway along the road
> formerly used by the route), all the 4 relations have to be updated!
> The concept of hierarchical relations makes it possible to avoid this
> edition nightmare, so that one single relation has to be modified, and this
> modification is automatically applied on the other 3 routes.
