One of the things I like about OSM is that it maps the world as it is,
not the world as the map-maker wishes it was.  I've spent enough time
trying to follow hiking trails that a park manager wished they had the
funds to build, or being side-tracked by logging roads they wished
didn't exist to really appreciate a reality-based map.

If you can't go from Line 1 to Line 6 in a wheelchair without paying,
*map it*.  Sure, a policy change would be ideal, but until it's
changed, map things as they are, not as you wish they were.
