Perhaps, rather than deleting parts of tracks, showing points in different
colours by age, say starting green, then fading to red over some period of
time, maybe a year? That way if you see a bunch of green dots along a path,
with a row of orange dots that deviate from that path, you could assume the
orange dots show an older path... Obviously would have most value when there
were a number of tracks along the same path, though at least if there's only
one, you'd have some idea as to how recent it was...
