I thought that was perfectly clear: railways are an exception.
Or maybe you're just trolling.

There's very little else that's like an abandoned railway.
Though if a airelway or pipeline were dug up in parts, I'd have the same
keep the man made linear feature intact until it's completely gone.

Editors can be MUCH smarter about hiding clutter.  I see nothing at all
wrong with hiding by default
razed railroads, boundary relations, and even land use polygons.  Anyone
who needs/wants to edit
those features could turn them on.
