>> I think including the actual route is useful and makes life easier for downstream users (they don't need a routing engine to show the route), could this be optional so you can create a public transport route relation via waypoints only if you prefer as a starting point, but then still allow it to be completed via the way members.

So many relations with so many ways - especially highways, which are the first things newbies edit and thus are the most likely to break a relation - are an enormous maintenance bomb waiting to go off. (And sometimes it does go off, and the fallout goes on for months.)

And it affects not only people mapping public transport routes. I would gladly put burden on data
users 
(assuming that burden for data users is not significantly greater than burden removed from mappers).

I was really happy when some bus routes become invalid and I was able to delete them.
