Gert, your contributions are being looked after at fosm.org.  You are
welcome to edit there and there's no threat of them ever being deleted.

Sadly I think you are right.  The removal process was never thought through
properly.  OSM will be stuck with CC-BY-SA content for a very very long
time.  Expecting the crowd to go and re-map stuff wholesale, for somebody
else's benefit is just absurd, it's never going to happen.  Mapping is
addictive but pointless mapping is no fun at all.

So the only recourse is to do bulk deletions.  But I don't see anyone
hurrying to write the software to do that even if anyone could agree on what
it should actually do.
