You're probably aware, but just in case... boundary relations are much
easier for mappers to work with when they reuse existing ways.
I recently repaired a rather nasty foul-up in the Lake District where
someone had created the National Park boundary using new ways, but shared
nodes. The result was that when a newbie wanted to upgrade a road to
tertiary, he accidentally selected the boundary way instead and ended up
creating a very wiggly tertiary ring road all round the National Park.
I've also seen a case in another National Park where the boundary, which
follows roads, was created with entirely new ways. The result was that
beautiful boundary-derived ways were sitting alongside 2006-vintage badly
traced roads from NPE which should have had the same geometry.
In other words, take your time - it's worth getting it right.
