[Tagging] Public Transport Timetables

Integrating GTFS seems like a much better idea than adding actual schedules
to OpenStreetMap.  I had not considered this previously because I did not
understand how GTFS is used worldwide.  Perhaps it would be possible to
start something like a new gtfs.openstreetmap.org (which would be similar
to transit.land and transitfeeds.com, but with a focus of OpenStreetMap
integration) for hosting GTFS feeds that could be integrated into OSM.
That would allow for much easier integration and maintenance.

Copying what Google has done successfully seems like a better option than
creating a big, out of date mess.

I think that creating a new GTFS server would be better than using transit
land or transitfeeds.com, because OSM would have full control over what
happened to the servers and which licencing was used.

Does anyone with experience in GTFS know how an integration like that could
work?  Also, is what I am imagining even possible?
