[Tagging] Light-rail station

Hi all,

This light-rail station is above ground near an airport in South Korea.

http://osm.org/go/546KGWeqC--?m

I originally mapped the light rail (two tracks) and added a node at
each station point (so, two nodes per station, one in each direction).

A new mapper has done a nice job of the airport carpark, but has drawn
the station building outline and deleted the two sections of track
that went through it and one of the station nodes.  However, they have
added the building outline to a relation which represents the route.

Is this right?  Is there a better way?  Shouldn't the track be
continuous through the station building?

The reason for asking is that I'd like to show all station buildings
on this line like this.  They are mostly rectangular boxes with the
tracks running through, like this:

If everything is mostly ok what I'll probably do is copy the station
node tags to the building outline and delete the node.

Thank you,

Andrew
