I think the issue is how can we make this easy for new mappers. You can
select multiple buildings in JOSM by downloading the area then select
buildings, then select an author within the selection then move all the
buildings by that author at once. It's not complicated just a pain to do
if some of the buildings have been corrected already.
Sometimes in OSM its less work to blast everything that is there checking
the tags first to see its only buildings without additional tags then remap
than it is to clean up each building. However that approach is generally
frowned on in OSM.
May I suggest you freeze this project for the moment and get someone to
nudge the existing buildings into place then open it up again.
I'm not trying to pour cold water on the project but trying to head off a
