that sounds elegant and solves the problem I had yesterday when trying
to add some street numbers to a street made of many small ways that
branch from the main one, i.e. something like this:

  |         |
  |  |      |

there is now at least one such relation on the map :)


An even better alternative would probably be to add the collected
street relation to the associatedStreet one, but I'm not sure there is
support for relations in relations in the api / editors
