Can we *not* do this? Can this *not* be a thing? Can we instead go route
master and only have child *relations* have cardinal roles, with child ways
being exclusively forward/backward? Because cardinal directions on the
ways themselves is 1) ambiguous AF and 2) breaks validation on a level that
it can take hours to days for experienced editors to manually validate, and
can't be automated as a result.
