I would not call clicking three or four times "ton of work".

It may be slightly more easier to mass edit tags, but it is very rare operation.

It is more typical to check meaning of existing object (the most common for most of mappers)

or to edit parts of the entire object.

Splitting tagging into relation and individual ways is making it much harder.

I referred to idea of removing tags from individual ways (like man_made=pipeline) andkeeping them only in relation.
