Very much like the possibility to map routes without specifying every 
single way segments.

One thing that seems hard to deduce is that eg buses take different routing 
depending on various policies. For example local buses in many places will never 
enter a freeway because they may have standing passengers which restricts them 
to a maximum operating speed incompatible with the use of freeways.
Some use toll roads preferentially while others avoid them deliberately.
