As an example:
Here, there's a ~250-meter-long way without any mapped crossing. If, as a
hypothetical example, I want to go by foot from the Sri Lankan embassy to
the Restaurant Venezia right across the street, the router sends me on a
~250 meter detour all the way to Favoritenstraße and back instead of the ~25
meter segment along the abstracted street I would otherwise get.
