Well, I'll try anyway.

Understood. I would only ever edit / delete/ add features based
on personal observation and GPS waypoints and tracks.

Okay, that's reassuring.
Concerning those "roads" that I'm fairly sure are canals... I
suppose could try to re-tag them as canals and so perhaps
preserve some useful info. The issue I see with that is that I
don't think they are located accurately and I can't capture GPS
tracks for many of them as they are located on private property,
not public right of ways. I am reticent to tag something I can't
personally verify as "reviewed". Not sure how to handle that.
