[Tagging] Number of route relation errors very much reduced

Id-users do not break the routes as often as they used to. Assuming the
users did not change overnight, I guess the ID-release caused that. Other
online editors I seldom encountered when looking at a break, but I would be
haoppy to give them credit for some of the errors! Josm caused few errors,
and these were mainly of  type "ordering error" in bus routes and cycling

Editing/maintaining the routes is not the same as not breaking them. But
you knew that, I guess.
If anyone is interesting I could provide a list of capabilities needed for
proper maintenance of recreational routes.

PT-routes, I will not burn my hands on those: I would probably be targeted
by all PT-war parties.
But IF exact routes (ordered chain of ways)  are to be maintained for PT,
the improvement in ID also helps greatly with that. Detecting
incidental breaks is the main issue, fixing them  is a POC.

(As long as the directions are held as separate routes. The
backward/forward role system in routes is a ginormous PITA to me.)

Best, Peter Elderson
