Route 6A & 6B naming

The documentation for bus route relations states that "if the bus route is a round trip, the 'to' and 'from' tags will be the same ... in the case of such a bus route, you can choose to use 'Bus <ref>' as the name."[1] The current PTv2 naming reflects this for routes 6A and 6B by setting the name field to Bus 6A and Bus 6B, respectively.
