Yes, they are, because a relation membership and new way (with new tags and
node refs) are both completely separate new entities that need to be
uploaded. If an editor can reliably do it with a new way then it can also
reliably do it with a new relation member.

Yes, but the new (split) way is not necessarily always uploaded.
