Because there is a rendering of the data (openrailwaymap.org and the
ITO specialist renderings), and because people CARE.

That sounds like an excellent idea! And those streets can be rendered
on openrazedstreetmap.org and on openbuildings.org. Trouble is that
there isn't really anybody who cares about that. But feel free to add
razed streets (I do), and razed buildings. There's a few railway=rail
sidings which would make more sense if you could see the buildings
they used to serve.
