[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Dev site has inconsistent data (#2154)

To expand further on what @tomhughes said - the dev apis start from empty databases, and their databases are occasionally emptied again. But they dev apis still use the normal third-party services, such as tileservers, nominatim, overpass etc which are all using "production" data, not the data within the dev api databases. So anything that uses a third-party service (like the query tool) will return production data, not the data from the dev apis.

Resolving this would be a tremendous amount of work. For every dev api, we would need a full set of tileservers, geocoding, minutely replications feeds, overpass servers, routing servers etc etc if we wanted full consistency between the different parts of the system. It's not really worth the effort.
