Note that area mapping would be an optional addition to lines
See https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/533125489

In the same way as say area:highway=footway areas is an optional
addition to mapping highway=footway lines
or area:highway=residential areas is an optional addition to mapping
highway=residential lines
