P2 can, at least.  Other people seem to suggest that iD does a 
reasonable job now too.

The more interesting question, though, is "why do you want walking route 
relations to be sorted".  The point that's already been made about 
routes that use the same way twice is a valid one, but almost never 
applies to walking route relations.  What are you trying to do with e.g. 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1976184 (the part of E2* that 
runs through Yorkshire) if it's not sorted?

Best Regards,


* There are actually many other things wrong with that relation. It's 
not signed, so in a since here it "does not exist" but at the very least 
it should be tagged as such.  Also it's actually defined here in terms 
of the Wolds Way (which is signed), not in terms of individual paths.  I 
also doubt that the LDWA is in any sense an "operator".
