[talk-au] Breaking a beach?

Have had a look at this several times & can't figure out how to fix it?

https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/17960956 has been mapped as one beach for
the entire northern part of the Gold Coast, which is fair enough as it is
an unbroken length of sand the whole way.

However, at some stage, several years ago, the entire length was named as
"Main Beach", which is actually only one relatively short section. A few
years later, the name was then changed to "Surfers Paradise Beach", which,
while more famous (?), is even shorter! In actual fact, this stretch of
sand covers 9 separate named beaches / areas.

Is there any way of breaking this one area into multiple beaches? (& I only
use iD, which probably makes things harder?)

To make matters worse, there are a host of relations involved in the same
line/s: suburb (multiple), City, Qld & Australian boundaries; Mainland
Australia relation; Coastline; watershed & undoubtedly more, of which
breaking any one will mean the end of civilisation!

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Graeme
