Stockholm Tvärbanan - Tram

Hello,
in the map Tvärbanan (line 30,31) https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/5989911 is labeled as "light rail". But the the Stockholm public transportation company (SL) officially labels the Tvärbanan as "Tram" (see links).
SL recognizes as "light rail" only the Saltsjöbanan (line 25, 26) - normal gauge rails, but not connected to the main railroad network and the Roslangsbanan (line 27, 28, 29) - narrow gauge rail trains, obviously also not connected to main network. Generally speaking, it is probably debatable if the Tvärbanan is actually a tram or a light rail vehicle, since the differences are not well defined, at least as far as I know. Nevertheless the SL officially calles it a tram and all stops have a "Tram" description. From a tourist point of view,  this causes cofusion and I think it should be relabeled as a tram line. The other lines called "Tram" by SL are also labelled as tram lines in the map. I want to hear other's opinions first.
