  All of today's routing software ignores route relations.  I predict that 
no future routing software will use them either.     And street connectivity 
correction to TIGER is not something that can be done automatically.

  I'm not anti-bot; even this auto relation proposal could turn out to be 
useful - as long as it is demonstrated offline rather than just blindly 
uploading it all and hoping it might have a positive effect.
