if i'm abroad, i want to know which of the various nearby types of railway stations are overland or which are urban metro - i think you need the generic tag for this - and of course maps would ideally indicate metro-ness of a particular network.

cheers, dan.

I'm not saying one shouldn't do this, merely that a generic tag would allow
