I don't want to warm up a discussion that has been put to death a long 
time ago so if this is an old matter that has been agreed on previously 
please let me know.

There have recently been a lot of canvec imports of questionable form - 
things like:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/59.1513/-120.6918
http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/46.6300/-81.7412
http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/48.4327/-91.7441

It does not seem very useful to import data this way since maintaining 
it in the future would be a nightmare and rendering a decent map from 
it is not possible without significant processing either.  Since there 
are other areas which do not have this kind of problem like

http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=13/48.8713/-75.8603

i assume this is also not really the way a canvec import is meant to be 
done.
