Again - the fact that people are giving time to enter data is precisely why we
need to be producing a guide to how to do things that is consistent. If people
are going to tidy up these 'couple of problems' then we don't want one person
deleting a node and another adding it back because they are looking at
different views of the same data :(
*ALSO* we also don't need people wasting time making the renderers play silly
tricks to make things look right. Lets just be consistent in how things are
handled. What ever the inconsistency!
