that could be a case of  copy/paste indeed, the road was amongst many
others created in the same change set, which also contains many


The user to blame would be "CeesW" then, not "It's so funny" though,
as you can see in the streets change history:



"It's so funny" only changed the highway type of the west half
of the street from "residential" to "unclassified", which is
a strange thing to do for a road like that, but not a license
violation for sure.

Whether the change set #10345339 and other ODBL related ones
from CeesW are indeed copy&paste changes or actual remappings
would require a comparison of data pre and post Jan 9, 2011
for which i don't have the tools at hand ...
