That would be a pretty complex query, for the following reasons:
* Similar naming may be obvious to a human observer, but can be really
hard to detect algorithmically.
* Similar geometry can be hard to detect because of split / combined
ways so you would have to go segment by segment, or something.

I'm happy to take suggestions for a query to make this work though, I
agree it would be useful.

How many of those are there? They would only be candidates if they
actually have names. How would we know this?
