Is there really a difference between embedded railway rails and
embedded tram rails? Isn't the only difference that the vehicles that
run on them look different?

Near where i live there's a narrow-gauge rack railway that runs on
embedded rails in the town. [1] These embedded rails look identical to
tram rails. Besides, the traffic signs are the same as for trams. [2]
I would have mapped such embedded rails railway=tram (but tag the
route route=railway). Therefore i also don't see the need for
distinguishing embedded_rails=tram/train/narrow_gauge/... (unless i'm
wrong and there is a technical difference).
