While that is a correct statement it also applies to nodes and tags and
does not add any additional information to what is already stated in
the text before, namely:
> At the core, "verifiability" is that everything you do can be
demonstrated to be true or false
What would be useful additional information on the verifiability of
geometries is the distinction between the ability to verifiably
localize something and the ability to precisely measure its location.
However i am kind of inclined to agree not to overburden the
explanation of the basic concept of verifiability with that much
detail. And of course the suggestion that proper and precise
documentation helps applies to recording of geometries as well - not
only to tags.
