Ordering them, if possible is helpful. Is there maybe some JOSM function that does it automatically?

That is not really relevant in topic how something should be mapped (in this case 

it encourages a correct and useful edit so it is not a problem).


> I read the relation:route wiki page, but there is only advice regarding stops order, and not way members order. Shouldn't there be a note on this page regarding the importance of sorting the ways to have a more useful relation than only spaghettis?

Feel free to improve wiki.

> By the way, I saw some hiking relations having a node without explicit role, seemingly as a start point; is it a generally accepted, used feature, or only an idiosyncrasy?
