Currently tagged as a "tunnel", although positioned incorrectly

Which is fine, as long as the definition of tunnel is changed.  The
definition needs to be changed, because I don't want my routing device
to tell me to "make a right and go through the tunnel".  And I don't
want dotted lines when these passages are rendered - because if I look
at that I'm going to expect something that goes underground, and I'm
going to be confused when there's no tunnel, but just a building which
was built over top of a road.
