We also have lots of these.  We map them as 2 separate ways, since in 
most cases some trace can be found at the start or end of the shared way 
where the waterway doesn't run along the road.
The section of the road that is shared with the waterway is often tagged 
as ford=yes, and seasonal tagging might also be applied.
This reflects mostly the situation in reality, as these "streams" are 
mostly intermittent and don't cover the whole width of the road, but run 
along it or cross it at several points (crossing points all tagged as 
Why is it so important that they share the same way ?
