OK, thanks Kevin.  So someone not paying attention to this level of 
detail might not actually know if they're using a Bing or DG 
image?  However, the word is to use Bing as the positional 
standard.  This sounds like a potential procedural problem.  Then in 
JOSM, if the layer list says Bing, then it is Bing?  Or do we use the 
copyright designation on the image itself?  Which might contradict 
the designation in the layer list.

                 Thanks, Cheers . . . . . . . . Spring
