Solution 1 looks perfectly good to me. Position, location, whatever.
If a consensus ever emerges, it's trivial to normalise them.
Solution 2 is inherently wrong, because there's no effective way to
redefine anything. Users will do whatever they have always done, so
merely reinterpreting their actions doesn't really change what their
Solution 3 (changesets), terrible idea. Editor support for changesets
is really patchy. Potlatch starts and closes changesets fairly
arbitrarily, and there is not (afaik) any way to tell what changes
were included in a changeset, or modify changeset comments after the
fact. Let alone the added complexity in having to query a changeset in
order to find out metadata about an object. And how does this address
the issue anyway...
