Railway=dismantled. Doesn't get rendered except where it should be,
on openrailwaymap.org.

Why is this so hard? I'm not asking you to do it. I'm asking you to
stop preventing me from doing it.

I'm not trying to make extra work for anybody.

I'm asking you to find a different way to make the map better than by
deleting things, valid things, real things, that other people entered.
