Yup, it was meant to be can't.

Ok, so that would make the modelling a little harder but still not  
impossible. I guess a boundary as a relation and then to include the  
ways that are excluded in the relation as 'congestion_charge=no' in  
the role.

It will be useful to us as we are looking at some official traffic  
count data for the UK and want to draw the congestion boundary on the  
base map to see if we can see a decrease in traffic within it after it  
was introduced. We will do something ad-hoc for now outside of OSM.
