For many features it is as easy to rebuild them as to do anything else but
junctions and railway stations are often very deeply knitted into other
To replace a single node that forms a junction might involve unstitching 3
ways (for the roads), one or more administrative boundaries and also a
bunch of landuse. A railway station may be much more complex still.
In one local case that I have already raised on this list I found a simple
junction that had been created by an anonymous user back in 2007 and had
subsequently been edited 82 times by people who had accepted the terms. Is
there no way in this case to formally 'claim' the IPR for this features on
the basis that we have moved them and edited all the surrounding features?
