+0.6, although there are fixed/signposted routes. I suggest to use an attribute for pilgrimage routes like those dedicated to St. Jacob or St. Francis (e.g. religion=christian, pilgrimage=yes, dedicated_to=St. Francis) that can be added to existing routes (route =foot etc.) . I wouldn't introduce a new route type because these routes are also used by a lot of people that aren't on a pilgrimage trip.

> My proposal route=worship is a route (usually short) with fixed places where one should worship.

+1, completely different beast
