An online editor like Potlatch will open a changeset and then let the  
user do whatever he wants, including changing an object again and  
again and again; since edits are not buffered by the editor but  
rather uploaded whenever they happen, it is inevitable to have  
multiple changes to the same object within the same changeset.
