No, the bus stop is not known the the "parent" at all. Way 1, in your 
example, is not part of Rel 7.

I guess it would be possible to create a "relation viewer" that 
recursively downloads child relations and somehow makes a whole from it 
for display/use. It's just not something that would work on a general 
level - just for specific relation types.
