An unsorted route in OSM is not damaged.  If your software cannot deal 
with unsorted routes then it cannot deal with many routes currently in OSM.

Please don't try and propagate the madness that some people have tried 
to impose onto public transport route tagging (e.g. multiple relations 
per route) elsewhere in OSM.  If something is not broken, please do not 
attempt to fix it.

(apologies for continuing offtopic diversion; not sure what this has to 
do with tagging)

Best Regards,
