I was saying there's no such thing as "flight paths" in an abstract form 
(that would be worth storing). If you record a flight path with your 
GPS, then all you have is historic information about one particular flight.

I'm all with you about having multiple layers to separate, say, historic 
Roman roads from today's. But by any stretch of imagination I cannot see 
OSM as a database of historic flight paths of individual aircraft.
