There is no way to actually merge the 3 routes for this peculiar VN, because the "triggers" of the main story are drastically different. That has nothing to do with character route, whereas heroines have their personal issues which aren't always mutually exclusive.

This is also why we never say "Saber's route / Rin's Route / Sakura's route" even if we consider as such because of the romance. If you remove that part, they are way too different hence the route name, not the heroine's.
How does it have nothing to do with it? What makes VNs so special and so great is how they tell multiple stories and that's what we are talking about here. Any VN that has different routes is valid. It might be better to have a cour or two for each route in the case of VNs like F/SN (two cours a route would fit there) instead of a few episodes but it doesn't change the concept of resetting the story and that's what we are talking about here.

I support the omnibus format however hope they make the series longer so they are not pressed for time because that is the real limiter and what ultimately makes the difference.
