They should, but I would postpone that until later.

The same is true with today's superways - tags should really be moved 
from the way into the relation but we can wait with that until everyone 
knows how to handle a superway.

I guess in practice this will depend on the type of relation one is 
talking about. With superway-type relations, the leaf objects have 
precedence.
