This looks quite interesting. Fox from our local working group hacked 
together a departures mini-webapp which simply uses abbreviated OLIF 
codes to identify stops, e.g. <http://h.fs-et.de/1010>
This also allows to select sub-platforms of a given stop (e.g. 
<http://h.fs-et.de/1010/3>), but is, however, not very human-readable, 
either. The code is available at 

Is there any platform which would allow for collaboratively developing 
such a standard?
