first of all, the SIRI Standard  is a standard which describes the
real-time data exchange. I don't think, that SIRI provides routes too.
If you read about SIRI, it's a kind of "data to be elaborated", for
example for the digital advisers in train stations etc. Often you have
some clients, which overlay the maps with this information (SIRI can
provide not only vehicle related information, information about
facilities or other pt-related things too).
Even in our travelplanner (which is from HaCon and is the same as the DB
or SBB or OEBB were using) uses other id's to identify the bus-stops.
So I think that the SASA-ref id's are not usefull to be imported into osm.
I hope out there are much more questions about the public transport,
because I think that the public transport is the future, otherwise,
where is the space for so much cars in the cities? ;-)
