[Tagging] Superroutes - good, bad or ugly?

a route_master isn't a superroute, isn't it ?
it's a collection off all variant of a "single" route
  and not several part of one route like superroute for E-network

route_master are well documented/used for bus route
but if someone want to convert a single type=route into a superroute (so 
a type=route having relation as member), imho it's better to make a 
propal with a good doc to allow app to add this case.
if not, currently valid route 'll become unusable in all app.
so sure that's the best/most need thing todo with PT version :(
