We can put as a rule that a tag in a segment override the tag in the way.
But there's still a problem for for tag overriding on long distance (ie 
on many segment).

IMHO, splitting a road in multiple ways to store name's changes is not a 
good solution because we gonna have to split it again for speed limit 
changes, and again for wide change, etc.
