Resubmitting by request of maper Sly:

The edit described at
was modified based on mailing list input, and sits at complete removal of
the "cluster" value for denotation, along with a certain fixme value.

The "cluster" value was introduced to mean "non-special tree".  The tag was
spread by a hotly disputed and partially reverted bot, and the tag moved
from there, finding its way onto a rather random assortment of trees, water
towers and sea buoys.  Removing just the bot added tags is not enough to
fix the damage caused.

No other values of denotation are at risk.
No human entered fixme values will be harmed.
The edit is proposed worldwide, though the impact is highly "clustered".

Simple typos such as *dentoation=clustar* may be handled at the same time.
Named trees with denotation=cluster are likely mis-tagged now.

Landmark trees marked cluster will be handled manually when noted.  For
