[Tagging] Roles of route members (was: Merging tagging scheme on wiki pages of Hiking, ...)

The issue here is that these relations are there, they conform to current
wiki documentation, but you can't simply use them in applications other
then for rendering. Some of the issues (sorting, bridge simple gaps) may be
solved with software at the data user's side, but on the whole you can't
rely on it. Usability depends on mappers applying strict tagging and
ordering standards and heavy maintenance to prevent problems.

If code exists that solves these problems, I would very much welcome that
if it could become availabe as e.g. a tool in JOSM. We could test that on
the E2 Yorkshire relation.
