I think that we should not define too many categories for any special
type of station. I think that the difference between importance=low and
importance=local is too small to need a separate category.

The category importance=sometimes may be a good idea, but even here I
think that tagging those stations with importance=local provides enough
information for most purposes.

In my current draft at
tze/Station_Importance_Draft, I just extended the definition of
important=local with the aspects of importance=sometimes.
