I don't think extra traces are a problem unless they're not
along highways (e.g., they're of going across fields) which
might be a bit confusing when somebody comes to mark up ways.
Also, I just happened to use the Basingstoke data as an
example. I've seen the same problem in Reading and High

I wouldn't worry about it. It's not specific to your data.
