This is, "surprise", not a new topic. There are certain issues with the 
semantics of relations which make this slightly more involved as the 
maximum node limit on ways.

With the later giving some insights in to why simply declaring a limit 
is not a good idea. But putting a bound in place and expecting all tools 
to be handle relations up to that size (just as we currently do with 
ways) would be a good thing to improve robustness of the whole system.
