There seems to be no agreed way to tag the London Underground, resulting in:

&
http://openstreetmap.org/api/0.4/way/4008533

If I change all occurrences of tube= to line= , is this going to ruin
anyone's day?  We could then additionally add something like this to
identify London Underground stations:

<tag k="created_by" v="JOSM"/>
<tag k="source" v="NPE"/>
<tag k="railway" v="rail"/>
<tag k="line" v="Metropolitan">
<tag k="network" v="London_Underground">

My thinking here is that k='line' is generic/international and can equally
be applied to other rail networks.  How does this sound?
