I have surveyed, it is removed from the relation, and consequently the
relation has a gap.

My understanding is for this relation type - a route - gaps are not
allowed.  After all, this is the whole point of having a "route" isn't it?

If I thought the sections were possible to correct, I would just do so.
However, with this relation, I see it as hopelessly flawed, and my
inclination is to delete it.

Since there seems to be support for it, I'll leave it be, and move along,
and hope someone else can make more of it.

I do pity the person who has this information currently in their navman, I
think they'll be lost pretty damn quick.
