Oh. I thought this had been done. So what happens if someone deletes the
whole of Cambridge?

I would. It's going to take me an hour or so to repair these changes,
which are all isolated (there's no further changes in that area); if I
could roll back, it would be quick and easy.
Sadly I have the OSM file for this, but I did it during API4, so it
won't read any more, otherwise I could just copy my original data.
