Excepted that ITO map is interpreting the tag as it is documented. If
you zoom at the maximum [1], you will see that the renderer is drawing
4 parallel lines in colour "red" which means 4 times "4,5 or 6
tracks".  It is not redundancy, it's simply wrong.
How can you distinguish when "tracks" is used as it is documented or
when it's used as RM interprets it ?
