Creating logical data from the start is difficult, as it's generally not a 
good idea to create ways until you've mapped every junction going off them. 
Inserting extra nodes/segments in a way and getting them back in the right 
order is currently not very fun and not something you want to have to do too 

I tend to jot down road names as a tag on the first segment of a road and only 
create the way once I'm sure I've mapped all connections.
