"High Speed"

Why the restriction on high speed maglev lines? There is no such distinction for normal railway=rail tracks in OSM, and one can always specify the exact particular maxspeed=* for any such line.

I did not mean restricting to HST. Just that maglev's primary use is HST. Erkin Alp Güney (talk) 08:22, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

There exist already quite a few maglev lines with not particularly high speeds, for example the Incheon Airport Maglev or the Linimo train which was built for the Expo 2005.

Current Tagging

Taking a quick look at a few examples of existing (or disused or currently under construction) maglev lines on osm, here's what they are tagged at the moment:

Line Status Tagging OSM Example
Shanghai Maglev Train operational railway=monorail
(partially additionally monorail=maglev)
Way 230069187 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history)
Way 230069188 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history)
Incheon Airport Maglev operational railway=monorail + monorail=maglev Way 227558575 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history)
Linimo operational railway=light_rail Way 45169095 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history)
Emsland test facility disused railway=disused + monorail=maglev Way 35745955 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history)
Chūō Shinkansen under construction railway=rail + note=maglev Way 519177029 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history)

(feel free to further extend this list of examples)
