However, the real question here is: "how to mark objects, that they dont
need to be tagged". That question rises occasionally in osm, but there
are no solutions yet. I personally sometimes would like to have
something like maxspeed=inherit or maxspeed=default, so you see that
someone already checked the situation.
We have some other cases with "default values" that are advised not to
be tagged. But then you can't differ between not-checked and default value.
Otherwise, then you would be pushed to tag a lot of stupid tags with its
default value to any object, just to mark that you did not forget to
check it. Thats no solution ever.
