Don't forget that the issue is not an endemic issue with route relations,
it's just an osm2pgsql issue.

osm2pgsql is the most popular tool for loading data into a database for
raster rendering. But it's not the only one; that's not the only use case
for OSM data; and who knows whether osm2pgsql will remain pivotal as vector
rendering supersedes raster rendering. I use Interstate route relations as a
small part of cycle.travel's routing algorithm, for example. "Anything" is a
big word!
