Where is taking into account this context documented?
I see no evidence of this on the wiki, are you just saying that so far
you've been lucky?
I also apparently can't now use the tag "rail", "root", or "footpath".
Whether these are actually used at the moment is quite irrelevant, as
you obviously intend to keep running this bot over and over, meaning
I'll /never/ be able to use these tags for anything. What's most
worrying is the recklessness with which you're running this script,
effectively blacklisting tags without discussion... how do I know you
aren't going to keep expanding this list?
BTW thank you for removing some of the more blatantly wrong tag
mappings. Have you reverted all of these yet?
