This is like the discussion on where some buses on a certain line one
could pay with a contactless card, while on other buses one couldn't,
which affects the network tagging.

IMHO OSM is a geographical database, and there are some things that are
too detailed. Off course it's good to lay out a structure for this, but as
long as far more large-scale items are missing, I wouldn't put too much
energy into it.
