Actually for me it looks quite logic. 

At the list one could find a couple of topics on this matter.

http://gis.19327.n8.nabble.com/Why-the-difference-between-railway-crossing-and-level-crossing-tt5261037.html

http://gis.19327.n8.nabble.com/Why-are-railway-crossing-and-level-crossing-separate-tags-tt5258808.html

On the other hand railway=crossing vs railway=level_crossing are at least
documented at the OSM wiki.

Perhaps it's worth to sort out the incorrect ones first.
