I don't agree with you on that point. With that view we can't change 
things in OSM anymore to a more precise mapping.

IMHO it shouldn't be the internal OSM database ID that makes something a 
"logical object", but the ref on that object.
Say you're transitioning from a node to a way for a bus stop, simply 
copy the relevant tags from that node to the way.
