[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - (Hierarchies route=bicycle)

Well, I regularly edit and maintain a lot of routes, route hierarchies and node networks. Id is fine for a few basic things, adding and editing tags, combining two routes in a superroute. Now try checking and sorting routes from hundreds up to thousands of members, including forward and backward roles. Try cutting a way belonging to 10 different routes and route systems, then repair the damage. I have tried very hard to do  this with Id. Try splitting an old unmanageable damaged hiking route into manageable and reusable parts, each complete, sorted, and fitting together end-to-start. Try checking and repairing a node network. 

I have checked the capabilities of P2. As with Id, basic things are possible: add, edit a member, edit tagging, as long as it stays simple and not too big. If it’s more complex, involves sorting and error checking/repair of multiple routes, networks, hierarchies: If anyone does a lot of work like that in Id or P2, I would like to know how, so I could do more work online. 
Let’s start with sorting the members of a route relation containing 300 members. How would you do that in P2?

Whether that to you is "easily" I can't answer though - you'd have to try it yourself.
