#4606 new defect

Node within way features should only be shown when node within way is selected

For example pedestrian crossing should not be draggable from the POI list due to it having the xml:

<within entity="way" k="highway"/>

within it's definition. Similarly when changing a POI it shouldn't appear in the menu when it's meant to be just for within a way, when you have a point selected.

This item shouldn't also appear in the list on the left when you have selected a way that is not a highway=*, for example a railway=rail shouldn't list it, if there is no within entity for it. In this case, if you add a crossing to a railway, the tag panel doesn't understand that tagging combination.

Also implementing this, will reduce the number features to a more manageable level and only show the ones that are relevant, thus improving the user experience.

There is a way to get these items out the drag and drop POI panel by using <point draganddrop="no"/> however it would still be useful to be able to filter the list in the menu when you have selected a node in a way, such that if it says within ... then only show it if it is within a way of that entity.
