The current implementation seems to imply that only those organisations with the resources to run worldwide routing are eligible to be included. This means that smaller organisations doing interesting/pioneering routing work or providing more specialist routing which might not be expected to be worldwide (e.g. horse routing, skiing routing?) are excluded.

Yet one of the key benefits of OSM is that it facilitates specialist routing beyond that found on well-known large consumer-facing company sites, something osm.org should perhaps be demonstrating.

Therefore has the possibility that interested organisations might be able to provide a GeoJSON file covering their routeable area (plus driver engine code to translate results, and a service level guarantee), and the drop-down GUI modified so that this appears dynamically as an option when the user is suitably zoomed in, been considered?
