This is not a "similar thought". The original poster talked about 
combining ways to form relations, thus informing the renderer that the 
name need only be rendered once for the length of it. You are proposing 
to sprinkle the map with extra nodes that are not connected to anything, 
which is of course unacceptable ;-)
