Merkaartor systematically overwrite the "created_by" when doing changes on
the server (after having followed a similar thread).

If this tag has any value, it is, IMHO, to be able to identify editors
having strange/wrong behaviors needing to be addressed.

AFAIK, there is no "standard" way for the server to know which editor is
sending it data. It could, based upon the user-agent, but I don't think
there something foreseen regarding this.
