<p>Unless we have time and resources to implement something fancy, may I suggest to temporarily shelve anything that takes more than 2 weeks real time to get on osm.org?</p>
<p>I love overengineering things, and <a href="https://xkcd.com/974/" rel="nofollow">https://xkcd.com/974/</a> .<br>
But:<br>
a) There's a high risk that this will be heatedly debated 2, 3, 5 years from now.<br>
b) Something simple in place might prevent only a fraction of issues, but that's more than nothing.<br>
c) Something simple is easier to extend [if following a sane design].</p>
<p>For example, let's start with a hardcoded limit, set in the DB.<br>
Then it could be extended with per-user overrides, still directly in the DB. If somebody gets to it.<br>
Then some admin interface could be added. If somebody gets to it.</p>
