Well, that information could just go in the changeset comment. I think
the idea was more that you'd add an end_date=* tag to the feature to
show when it really disappeared (from the real world) as opposed to
being removed from the current OSM dataset.

For a bus route (or any feature replaced by an equivalent), something
like superseded_by=* with a reference to the new route would probably be
more succinct.
