Frederik is slightly exaggerating, in that it's OK to do so if all the 
contributors of any data you're keeping have agreed to the CT, even if 
you yourself have not surveyed or traced it. (Otherwise we'd have a 
major problem whenever a way is split.) In fact I believe Frederik has 
done this sort of copy-paste into a new object when the history of a 
relation has become too large.
