[Talk-transit] Line colour, text colour and background colour

The route and route_master relations have a documented "colour" key that
can be used.  However, that seems to be intended for the line itself,
and I'm not aware of any renderer that uses it.  If they did, they'd
probably use it for the label background too. 

Relation:destination_sign has attributes colour:back and colour:text, so
it makes sense to reuse those here, but if renderers aren't even using
colour for the line/label today, I wouldn't count on them doing anything
special with the text either.
