I dont think we should act like "fix a before we fix b" - We should
do b and not forget about a.

We know we dont have street widths and there are people thinking
about mapping streets as areas additionally. This is something very
far away for me. Nevertheless i have quite good Sat or Aerial Imagery
so i can see where the ditch goes underground and where it comes back.
So i map it as this - a small way of tunnel=culvert layer=-1.

When somebody now starts mapping streets as areas hopefully my culvert
is already correct and matches the street sides.
