I tend to agree. Consistency is worth pursuing, but users of OSM data
can and should never assume that it is present in OSM data.
Also I don't think merging departs from accepted / general mapping
practice. Most mappers I talk to would suggest to merge when there is
a point and a polygon representing the same thing.
