Ok, I've discussed this off-list with Nick and did a test run for 1000 
(of roughly a quarter million) ways. Here is one example touched by the 


The license change view has picked up that this way doesn't carry any of 
JohnSmith's changes any longer and therefore it is now colored yellow:


Of course one can simply switch off the yellow stuff with the check box 
on the left if one finds it confusing - yellow is just a way for OSMI to 
tell you that it considers this way OK based in its own reckoning rather 
than because it has a squeaky clean history.

If people are happy with that, I will run the script for the remaining 
ways. But don't expect miracles - it's a lot of data and it will take 
one or two weeks to complete.
