I thought there were already tools for this.  There's the wiki, where
people leave comments like "Complete from Cobb to Bartow county".
There's OpenStreetBugs, where we can mark things like overlapping nodes
that don't connect.  Putting data into these where the robot can't make
a good decision isn't difficult.

If people aren't already using those tools (or others) to know what to
work on in OSM, then how are they doing it?  Blind luck... just pick a
spot on the map and check everything to see if it's right?
