By the way, according to the wiki, "area=yes, in the context of roads,
indicates that the area has no street lines within it".  That may or may not
pose a problem depending on the streets you are mapping.  In my neighborhood
none of the minor streets have street lines so an area tag could be used
without even ignoring the wiki.
