The route tag was intended for this but it doesn't work because of the 
situation you have.

Frederick's relationships prototype is intended to address exactly this 
need - the ability to combine Ways together in different configurations. 
So you can have one "entity" for all the ways that make up NCN7, another 
for KM Trail and so on.
