it's perfectly acceptable to turn a tracklog into a road, and there
are tools at osm/the tangogps website to do this. i find it's only
useful where i'm doing a trip at high speed. at low speed the points
are so close together, that the track jags all over the place and
doesn't precisely represent where i walk/cycled

if you do backtrack/stop for a few moments, it's possible to delete
individual points from an osm way - just click on the one you want to
remove, and press delete on your keyboard (this is using potlatch, by
the way). or, if you've cut a corner, extra points can be added and
dragged around
