Yeah, I can see it would be.  And for longer bus routes.  Just not for any
of the bus routes I know
around here and am likely to map.  You end up with the only common segments
being very short
around a central bus station, then they all diverge.  Once diverged, there
is nothing to share.

I'm not against such sharing in principle, where it makes sense.  But if it
comes at the price
that all bus stops have to be in the aggregate relation and not in the
subroutes then it becomes
useless for my purposes.  And I freely admit that my purposes are a fairly
rare case, but I'd
still like to handle it.
