In theory data users should be able to do without roles at all (though
they might appreciate some help if there are a lot of
direction-specific stop names), and data users should be encouraged
not to depend on them.

I think the "simplified" advice is that roles aren't required (but
that if you want to make the line-diagram service work with a
two-directions relation, then - for the moment - you need to do xyz).

Can anyone point me to a route relation with platform & stop members,
so I can check how the line-diagram service works in that situation?
