and perhaps there's a lesson about the current state of the validator here?
newish josm users are told they should install the validator right in
the splash screen, they install it and
use it implicitly when uploading, it tells them there are errors, they
"fix" them, then they get told of
different errors after they've laboriously "fixed" 20 or 50 or 100
duplicate nodes. they don't really get
a whole lot of help in understanding the rabbit hole they've just gone
down. they know it's a rabbit
hole, but they have no real idea what just happened.
