I've long supported cleaning up the Fresno import by removing 
landuse=residential, and have done some work on remapping the areas 
myself, but I've found there's too much cleanup of the import to do by 
hand. There's some issues with 
http://blog.light42.com/wordpress/?p=2553, mainly with parts of the 
process which aren't identified:

- how to delete the data;
- how to identify the data;
- how data edited by users since the import will be identified and handled;
- problems with disentangling the imported data from other data; and
- when the process is defined better, it should be on the OSM wiki.

So, I'm supportive in principle, but there aren't enough details yet.
