It would be usefull to document the method of  including alternate, side trips and access tracks to these routes.

At the moment I and others are using the role 'alternate' for track alternative paths.

For 'side trips' (short paths to features of interest) possibly the role 'side_trip'?

For 'access tracks' (paths from common and signed places that leas to teh main track) possibly the role 'access_track'?
