Interesting, this answers something I've wondered about. Sometimes I
see ways in data that you can tell the GPS signal dropped, those I just
connect. I'm mapping locally, so have a sense of when that's
appropriate, and can drive there to validate. When the metadata changes
sometimes in the segments, those have to be separate to preserve that.
For us that's often where you park the fire truck and get the UTV
going... Anyway, as a long term solution, route=road seems the way to go
after I get all the data cleaned up.

If I ever got around to adding all these relations, it might improve
search. A big task unfortunately. There are other issues with how search
works in OsmAnd, that's a different email list. :-)
