Yes. :)

See the proposal
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/roman_road

This example demonstrates how to gather the missing bits into a route using
a relation:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/roman_road - I
haven't checked it

upset people that
nobody will be happy with it.
