That's not strictly true; I did object (and you replied) via the OSM
message system when you started updating fords so that they didn't
reflect the sense of what was there on the ground. The "highway=ford to
highway=blah/ford=yes" change did make sense*; it was the other
"tidying" that you did at the same time that I objected to.

Please no. There seems to be an infinite number of monkeys over there
but they've not come close to the works of Shakespeare.
If you want to influence the way stuff is tagged in OSM go out and map
stuff; you can then tag it how you like.
* some warning would have been helpful though, so that people who render
maps (which includes anyone who creates maps for e.g. Garmin GPSs) can
keep up to date with how someone in an armchair thinks things should be
tagged this week.
