I'm not sure why the need for a specific towpath-waterway relation. Why not
just have a general-purpose relation for "association"? It could be
augmented with a type if need be, but that's probably unnecessary - if one
member's a canal and the other's a towpath, you can deduce it from there.

We have a general-purpose relation for routes, rather than a specific cycle
one, a walking one, and so on.
