I don't understand why it's not a PT.
Of course no vehicule is used.
but with some stop (including a pole and "people waiting there"), 
timetable, itinery, and a "walk driver", imho it's the same as if was a 
bus route.
Some use the word "pédibus" (pédi = by foot)

wiki said :
Use public_transport=platform to identify the places where passengers 
wait for public transport of any type

imho I don't see why the place where 20 childeren waiting the "walk 
driver" to travel with him is not a public_transport=platform
but the same passengers waiting at the same place for the same driver
with a bus is a valid public_transport=platform
the same apply to the route where a relation type=route route=foot
and all other PTv2 tag look like good imho.

Lorenzo wait more than one reply before changing the propal :)
