If they're too stupid to zoom in to see those tracks, they shouldn't be 
walking them.  Seriously.

Or are you arguing something different?  If you're arguing that each 
track should show in its entirety at some zoom level, and doesn't on my 
scheme, then that's important.

But I checked the Hume and Hovell Walking Track for that aspect in the 
early days, and it does (Yass to Albury): 
http://osm.lonvia.de/world_hiking.html?zoom=9&lat=-35.51907&lon=148.13029

I do not wish to put my case again.  If it made no impact the first 
time, it won't now.
