The main thing is that people often refer to "Talstation" and 
"Bergstation" but this information is not machine-readeable but mostly 
encoded in the names of the stations. My goal ist to make this 
machine-readeable because it almost all cases people can refer to it 
even if they do not know the station's name. It's obvious what's meant 
in almost every case what I mean when I say "Bergstation Mutteralmbahn" 
[1] even if the station's name doesn't say so [2]. So let's put this 
into machine-readeable tags to enable applications to solve a problem 
not for specialists but for the general map purpose we're building.

In my opinion we did have the right discussion and have a very good 
proposed definition with easy values that people with a basic 
understanding of english can understand. Do you agree?
