I do?? Last I knew, I tagged them railway=unfinished, and you
unilaterally changed all of them without consulting me to
railway=abandoned and added your own
note. E.g. http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/48433653/history

Please don't mistake my acquiescence to your edits as anything more
than tolerance. You have a reputation for having strong opinions about
edits and the willingness to engage in an edit war. Now, since
railway=abandoned with a note that it was never finished is not
out-and-out WRONG, I didn't change it back. However, I do believe that
railway=unfinshed is the correct tag. I'm not a big fan of mapping for
the renderer.
