Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

A lot of the ways I'm adding closely follow national park or administrative boundaries*, and Potlatch 2 often creates unwanted junctions between my road and the boundary.

Is there some way I can add a point to a way that's very close to a another way, without creating a junction?

*In australia, it is extremely common for a road to have existed before national park or admin boundaries were created, and the boundaries were added exactly along the road. OSM often has these boundaries on the map, but doesn't have the road.

A way can be used for both, the follow function is useful for this see http://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/7936/how-can-i-make-a-line-that-follows-another-line-with-potlatch it's useful where a river borders a park or a Forrest lines a road among other uses. If you really want to keep them separate try magnifing to max and choose blank background.
