No. Commuter Rail (S-Bahnen in Germany) is widely tagged with 
route=light_rail. But it is not really correct. Light Rail sometimes 
uses tram ways on streets. Commuter Rail does not. I wrote about that in 
the proposal.

Thank you! That's right. I thought about the Stadtbahn (=subway/tram) 
system in Hannover.
I'll fix that.
