If you wanted true anarchy people would use datums other than WGS84,
it would also make the data pretty useless as a result.

If we can all agree on a datum, why can't the same be true for tags as well?

PS wikipedia claims WGS84 is only useful until 2010, anyone know what
we should be using instead?
