1. If it were true that the data does not cause problems, that would
still not be a sufficient reason to keep it in OSM.

2. I believe that it *does* cause problems because it indicates to
others that OSM is a suitable place for such data (which OSM is not).
There is a very real danger of people wanting to map past natural
disasters or even past cultural events, "because we also map nuclear
explosion sites".

These sites are a bad example and if the import had been properly
discussed along the rules we have today, it would certainly have been
shot down.

Hence my desire to remove them.
