It worked nicely, I was quite lucky though since my ways/nodes were all close to others from Yahoo aerial imagery, none from survey AFAIK... So I chose a suitable boundary area, then searched using things like:
type:way unclassified [username]
Where [username] was my username and other usernames who I had a strong suspicion had also been sketching from aerial imagery in the area. Now to see how 'road' renders (hopefully thinner)
