A very fair point. Possibly the main incentive to bother to get features
into Map Features is just for this reason, so that Maplint doesn't complain
about them! People are free to do whatever they like in the DB, but Maplint
will only follow Map Features. I was also musing of a 'clean' version of
planet.osm, in addition to the 'let-it-all-hang-out' version, that only
includes approved tags, to make using OSM less confusing for new people and
again to encourage the voting and agreement process. Possibly, with
rendering, the 'approved' rendering should follow approved features, but
people are free to add whatever they like to development renderers? I am
digressing, but I think it is good to think about how to allow creativity
and anarchism, but also create harmony and standardisation over time, and I
think we have all the ingredients, we just need to use them and set the
rules up correctly.
