[OSM-talk] Errors or not errors?

  While fixing some validation errors I've found an "interesting" case and 
would like to get your opinion on how to deal with it.

  There is a school stadium mapped. Stadium has a usual oval and two "starting 
tails". It is mapped as leisure|track and validators seem to assume these have 
to be closed areas (which is true in most cases).
  In this example stadium is made up from two "ways". In some other instances 
it could be made of one "way" having an extra line (something like letter Q).

  This kind of mapping is rendered ok in osmarender and garmin map created 
with mkgmap but is NOT rendered in mapnik.

  Does anybody have any experience dealing with such kind of "problems"? 
Should these stadiums be mapped in a different way or should validators be 

  Thank you

P.S. keepright is not the only validator identifying this as an "error".
