As a late-joiner to this list I definitely vote for moving Oxomoa's 
proposal to the "public" wiki space.

Could anyone give a quick comment on what the consensus of the list 
member's on using his proposal is? I've been using it extensively and 
find it to be well though through and suitable for almost every possible 
public transport layout and on the same time offering the best 
possibility to have as much information covered in OSM as possible.
