There is no reason as to why the overlay couldn't automatically split the
way on it's own vector overlay and then when the route is confirmed that
the split be transfered to OSM along with the relation information.

1) User selects long way at location x,y
2) User selects way joining previous long way
3) system would be able to split long way and know which side of split is
required from previous x,y co-ords.
