[Imports] GNIS tag removal proposal - Bulk vs. Editor

The GNIS tag cleanup... might that be better as a true bulk edit?

With the editors dropping the tag:
* Any agent depending on the gnis tags will see their data slowly melt away
over a period of years.
* Since tag removal at save time is silent, a person saving a node won't
see it the way it will be saved.
In particular if the ele= tag conversion is done, it would be better for a
hand mapper to see the changed tag and have a chance to supply an elevation.

There's so little value in these gnis tags, and so many of them, seems like
bulk has some merit?
