I'm opposed; this seems like a duplication of effort for what route
relations are currently for, and creates redundancy and overlap in scope
with the service= and highway= tags.  As such, this really sounds like a
step in the wrong direction.  Perhaps expanding the service= tags and
getting the mapnik and osmarender we use on the slippymap to render
these things instead of route tags on the underlying ways when the
underlying way is a member of a route=road relation.

The cyclemap is getting this right; but strangely, none of the other
renderers.  And it's not like it would be that hard to get that fixed;
someone's already rendering road relations complete with correct highway
badges already.
