perhaps, but as I understand it there can be a lot of
include/not-include in styles, so I see TYP files being different as a
high-level difference, within which there can be maps built for
different reasons.   And I would hope there would be fewer TYP files,
just because things are confusing enough.

That sounds fine to me.  I would hope that the TYP file is not actually
checked in, but the source code that the mkgmap TYP compiler users, so
it can be edited easily.
