If it's not taking prisoners it's not a prison, though I've seen
historic prisons marked as real ones. If the museum is being renovated
is it still a museum? When there is a big construction work around
here I remove all streets inside that landuse=construction. These are
all temporary things, a year or two after the tagging is obvious.

And old failed railway cutting through the landscape is pretty
permanent, I'm not sure if Russ maps planned railways as well. I'm all
for including them as well.
