[Talk-transit] RFC on interchanging data

Hello everybody,

What is the consensus on how to map interchange data? I would like connect two 
(or more) bus stops and/or railway stations to indicate that you can 
preferably change vehicles there (e.g. the bus stop(s) that is/are intended to 
change into a nearby train station). This is often indicated by sharing the 
same name, but not always.

I haven't found anything useful about this neither on
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Public_Transport
and its connected pages nor on
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Oxomoa/Public_transport_schema
and I want to know which data model (or models) I hard-code into my software 
and use for the data I map.

I think that membership within a relation "public_transport=stop_area" fits 
best for this purpose but I'm not sure whether I can interpret all existing 
stop areas in this way. Thus, I would be grateful for any comments.

Cheers,

Roland
