There are still things that would benefit from verification though; in
the Shell case for example "NVDS353-12302183"
http://audit.osmz.ru/run/shell/NVDS353-12302183 is suggested to be added
as a new node when https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5249220844 is
clearly the item to be updated (it's relatively new, but has preseumably
