It's taken me several months but the South West Coast Path is now stored as
a super-relation. I'd delayed completing it until the licence change
process had finished. Initially wasn't sure about how may relations I
should split it into to, but I decided to use the 52 sections used by
official website. I've updated the couple of wiki pages pointing to the
route, and created a separate page for the relation

All the appropriate tags for the relation (eg type=route) are attached to
the super-relation. I've only added a name, url, and note tag to the
sections. This was because I was unsure if adding a tag such as type=route
to a section made the section a distinct and separate hiking route. A
website that shows hiking routes
states it assumes a child relation is simply a section of the parent
relation if they both have the same Network tag. This suggests I should add
all the route tags to the individual sections. I can add them fairly
quickly if they are needed

I've left the old relation in the "database" without route tags in case I
have somehow blundered and there is a need to restore the old version. If
there's no problems I'll delete the old relation in a few days.
