it won't be arbitrary locations but you would have segments of routes
which are part several route relations. Think of a simple bus route,
usually you will have 3 relations (one forward, one backward, one to
combine the two), now you would have relations of short pieces as
members of the forward and backward relations where they represent
segments of roads that are used by several route relations.
