I've managed to undelete the way - and using Potlatch remove the way from 
both relations (the E20 and E6 Euro-route relations) - and then re-delete 
the way.

All seems to have worked ok at first glance - and the way is no longer 
showing in the list of ways in 

However - I tried to use JOSM to add a way to the relation - and it still 
gave a "412 Precondition Failed" response.

Sounds like there could be other ways with referential problems somewhere 
along the line.
