As these may be in any order???
Then group them together or not. Accept them in a separate relation if 
wanted. And have them with a suitable role that users can ignore or use 
as they like.
The same with any other POI like log books etc.

Those who like sequential order in the routes can then place them all at 
the bottom and deal with the ways as they please.
