Based on this I'll added to the "diff" seen by the mapper.
I can show the comments tag in the summary.  So the merge run might produce:

Source key 5: name="Big Chain"
Osm    key 5: name="Big Chain (CLOSED)"
Osm    key 5: comment="This store was burned to the ground by 
anti-Canadian mobs"
Osm    key 5: userid=goodMapper

Source key 6: name="Big Chain"
Osm    key 6: name="Big Chain HIRES ILLEGAL CANADIAN WORKERS"
Osm    key 6: userid=vanalHaxxer

Source key 7: name="Big Chain"
Osm    key 7: name="Big Chain HIRES ILLEGAL CANADIANWORKERS"
Osm    key 7: userid=vanalHaxxer

Source key 8: name="Big Chain"
Osm    key 8: name="Big Chain HIRES ILLEGAL CANADIAN WORKERS"
Osm    key 8: userid=vanalHaxxer

Add    key 1: name="Big Chain"        (the tool won't discover that 
vanalHaxxer deleted store #1)
Add    key 2: name="Big Chain"        (the tool won't discover that 
vanalHaxxer deleted store #2)
Add    key 3: name="Big Chain"        (the tool won't discover that 
vanalHaxxer deleted store #3)
Add    key 4: name="Big Chain"        (the tool won't discover that 
vanalHaxxer deleted store #4)



So in the end is the tool considered harmful?
