I'm really irritated by such remarks. Your are also maybe one of the "is_in"
tag supporters because, hey, how can a simple tool find if an element is
inside a polygone or not. Asking people to put on all roads the ten or
twenty attributs making everyone happy like maxpeed, minspeed, averagespeed,
recommended_speed, blind_in_one_eye_drivers_speed, width, noexit, maxheight
is simply unrealistic, makes perhaps some lazy developers happy but is
definitely not making mapping easy.
Let the software do the boring and repetitive work for humans and not the
opposite.
