[Tagging] StreetComplete: no re-survey for speed limits

Hey guys,

I just wanted to inform you that unfortunately, StreetComplete will not
offer a re-survey for speed limits in the upcoming "Map Maintenance with
StreetComplete" feature but probably never anyway.

Short explanation: It is impossible to implement a re-survey without
creating conflict with tagging practices, because there are many
competing ones, each locally established, but none globally. Also, none
of the current tagging practices for implicit speed limits are actually
eligible to be used globally.

Long explanation is here:

I post this to the tagging mailing list, as the reason for this is
really just an issue with the tagging scheme. For obvious reasons, I can
not take the initiative in solving this issue, I would just like that
more people are made aware of it.
