Yes, that's why I continue to find that it is a very bad idea to try and
start mapping timetables.

At most, I would say let's map in coarse strokes how frequent a service
is (which is still something that is subject to change at the operator's
whim but maybe not as often).

Anything beyond that is madness and should not be in OSM. I just don't
want to say it every time someone enthusiastically posts in this thread,
and of course they can try it out - but as Andy Townsend said, I'd
suggest a serious trial first, and *then* attempts at standardisation,
instead of the other way round.
