This definitely has to stop. We need to (a) find all ways with more than
a few thousand nodes and break them down, and (b) educate users that
they shouldn't do such evil things. Imagine the poor sod who opens a
little rectangle in JOSM just to find he has to wait for ages to
download 40k nodes! This slows down so many things.
(And what's more, once someone creates a way with 50.001 nodes, no
bounding box containing even one node of that way will be downloadable
through the API.)
I know that shortcomings in the renderers still make it attractive for
mappers to create giant polygons but we cannot allow this to get out of
Any comments? JonB perhaps ;-)?
