Just took a close look at my own link. On the 'Good practice' page it
says '[a second mapper could] come to the same place and collect the
same data ', but on the 'Verifiability' page it doesn't mention being
physically there.

So maybe it's ok if you can get the information from elsewhere (like
for historic features no longer visible or abstract concepts like
administrative borders), but I think for businesses it is quite a good
practice to require some sort of physical sign/logo/label.
