I'm glad you have both the time & patience, but I really think it's
better & more efficient if the originators of these traces tided them up
I'm not sure about this, but does OSM benefit from having people upload
inaccurate data & then not bothering to correct it?
I realize that TIGER is mass automatic upload & therefore on a larger
scale, but the main criticism of it, from what I'm aware of, was its
inaccuracies & the time others had to spend manipulating it.
