First of all, thank you for the suggestions. I'll try to implement as much as 
possible. To the details:
Splitting the line bar in two directions is possible. Also stopname printed 
below the line bar, but this excludes with printing correspondences below the 
line bar. Thus it will become an option. But the problem is that the generator 
doesn't use any way data so far, just the names and positions of the stops. So 
it will take a larger rework of the data model to make this possible. I'm 
thinking about this but I have not yet a good idea how to do.

What do you mean exactly? Relation 532894 has only two stops, but the 
itinerary looks a lot longer. Is this intended? So, should the longer section 
of the line be dashed from De Vigny to Funiculaire?
