If a renderer makes a distinction between tracks=1 and tracks=2, and we've marked two separate adjacent ways with tracks=1, then we'll just end up with two single tracks on top of each other at medium zooms.

It seems like OSM is already quite well-suited to handling this problem
with the tools already available.  See the Metropolitan Area Express
system in Portland, here's a particularly good example from the
neighborhood by the high school I went to growing up.
