Not necessarily. Creating routes will be more or less the same if your
editor highlights the ways between the nodes. But their are three
advantages : intersection nodes are quite stable in OSM, more than
single nodes or ways. Adding hundreds routes will not disturbe normal
edits. And last but not least, routes will not have to split ways just
because a bus is turning left or right at intersection.
