Why routing is a good idea.

Let us say a route uses 4 ways in sequence.

If those ways are sequentially inside the route then things are fine.

It breaks when

a mapper enters a turn restriction, breaking one of the ways

a mapper enters some road works that close a section of one of the ways

a mapper enters some speed limits that change alone one of the ways

All of these break the route.

If the route is entered as nodes on the intersection of each of the 4 
ways then any of the above mapper changes will not brake the route.

The routing engine may not pick the actual replacement route .. but it 
should be a reasonable approximation.


The above could be the best way forward - it relies on the nodes used 
connecting continuous ways together thus leaving the routing engine 
little work to do.

When (not if) that rule is broken then it indicates that the route needs 
to be checked, but in the mean time the routing engine will maintain the 
route in a usable fashion.
