For nodes .. think the roles of ways should be done first, but some 
thoughts for later proposal/s.

Are they necessary?

Start and finish points will be at the end of the main route ways .. 
should be obvious? No?

Markers .. humm I need some time to think on it.

Well for 'start'/'beginning'/'finish' .. err many routes can be 
'started' at either end. So why not use 'end' as that does not identify 
it as either start of finish?

Then should 'end' be only used for the main route, or can it be used on 
'approaches' and 'excursions' too?
