this is a circumstance for which i think we need to talk things out.

given that OHM exists and works, the situation has evolved a
bit. i know that when i'm looking at inactive race facilities, there's
a very grey area when it comes to putting them in OHM vs OSM,
and i've not been as consistent as i should be about it, in large
part because i'm uncertain about where the dividing line really
should be, and to what extent i should take non-spatial data
into account.
