In the example you are pointing, 6 of the 9 relations are for the Bus
311. I never map public transport relations but I've seen its modeling
expanding very far in complexity in recent time (fault is also because
some routes are complexe anyway). The amount of route relations will
increase in the future, this is unavoidable. I personally don't care
about such relations until they make our normal edits unmanageable.
One solution could be to bring super-relations in general use. Or find
another modeling for routes (e.g. with intersection nodes only).
