In that case, "layer" is value of layer= tag, with default of 0. That
gives automagical perfect rendering of multi-level crossings.
Probably it should be changed somehow to kick this behaviour in from
stylesheet itself, but I haven't found a better solution.

kothic/komap also have special value to redefine it to "top" or
"bottom" for the rule.
