A special relation may not even be needed and existing tags and
relations can be used to differentiate between streets.  In the example
of putting the village name after the street name, you might simply use
is_in.  If a way has certain different tags, or isn’t in the same
village, then it is likely to be a different street.

simple system that works.—John Gall
