It does bother me somewhat that we've standardized on leisure=track 
polygons around football pitches, rather than a linear leisure=track way 
plus an area:leisure=track area. Sometimes you have to walk through a 
track to get from one end of a stadium to another. But it is what it is. 
If anything, consistency with leisure=track probably outweighs the extra 
logic that data consumers already have to implement to distinguish lanes 
on leisure features from lanes on highways (or roundabouts).

More practically speaking, is anyone aware of pools that have a 
different number of lanes on either side of a bulkhead? If that happens, 
I assume the lanes would be marked only by rope floats and not lines 
painted onto the bottom, since a bulkhead can be moveable.
