Introducing a new 'relation collection' metarelation, that can have only
relations as members?
When it comes to E-highways I don't quite understand why to use relations at all
for them because they all have the int_ref tag end selecting everything tagged
as E 201 should give the same result. Or is it because some road sections are
belonging to more than one E-highway?
