%-) Could you point me to the place of that discussion? I've seen lots of navigation software, embedded or not, but NO software hides railways. When you're in the middle of nowhere, and you're driving with
your eyes (using the software like a paper map), railway crossing may be your single landmark to find a turn. Or, you think that routing software can drive you via railway?
C'mon, guys, Waze is not the navigation software for blonde (nothing personal). Blondes use iGo.

How many are "a few"?
I can say you one thing. There IS a way to visually separate a railway and a road. You just need to use a special line style.
This is the same place in various online maps:http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=55.66 ... 4&layers=Mhttp://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=55.6 ... 38581&z=15http://maps.yandex.ru/?ll=37.429187%2C5 ... z=15&l=map
And, if the railroads are not visible in client, we should delete them from the editor?
And, maybe we should not draw rivers - somebody will mess them with wide road.
