Thank you for the reply, Kevin. Using forward/backward roles on the members of the relation is also how I did it once on a route relation I added once: https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/8974019

Would this make you conclude that the sentence "proposal: It might be useful to indicate if the route is marked in the clockwise or counterclockwise direction, i.e. oneway=cw or oneway=ccw. " on the wiki page https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:route%3Dhiking is not necessary, confusing and can be removed?
