Ok, got it.

Yes. These razed/abandoned tracks have been in OSM for many years now in
Norway but so far with no objections. Will keep this in mind. I believe no
new razed tracks will be introduced with the import. The existing
razed/abandoned tracks belong to relations for historic railways and are
used for the live OSM maps in Wikipedia. Example:

I believe all names are real, typically "Bergensbanen" and similar. Will
check a few sidings.

I registered with the Openrailway mailing list on 7 March (and a couple of
times after that) but so far I have not been approved, so unfortunately I
have been unable to send the import plan to that mailing list.
