That means https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Davids  loses it's city status
as far as OSM
is concerned.  But it lost city status towards the end of the 19th Century,
only to have it
restored in 1994.  Easy come, Easy go.

There were Nephilim in the cities after OSM's Wikipedia/Wikidata

words in Genesis 6:4 are a mistranslation).
