not saying other things can't be fixed earlier, just pointing out that
there are other important things to improve. 

We already have a way to tag culverts as linear ways, that is fine.
Maybe not for culverts but for many tunnels something like man_made=tunnel 
analog to man_made=bridge seems badly needed.
On the other end of the complexitiy scale it would be nice to have
a simple method to map insignificant culverts with a single node.
