That sounds even more odd to me... what if it doesn't match? Do we have
authoritative gpx-es for routers? I may be out of my depth, but I think a
route for the map is observed and registered, not computed between A, B, C
etcetera. A route on the fly is a different thing.

Would it be an idea to make the route itself (the observed chain of ways)
an optional member relation of the PT routing relation? With member

Of course I would like to have a routing routine built into the relation
editor,  which can convert a survey gpx-trace to a route relation
containing the closest chain of already mapped ways, that would make route
maintenance much easier. (All kinds of routes, not just PT).
