Doubling (or near enough) the amount of tags on a given nwr seems a bit
excessive. StreetComplete could do a kind of wizard where is shows each
tag and asks the user to validate it, and only once all the tags are
shown to the user is an nwr considered confirmed, and adds a tag to say
it was surveyed or checked.

Alternatively if each storing when each tag has been validated is a
direction OSM wants to go, maybe it should be in the API. A client like
StreetComplete could "touch" a tag to rev it's edited timestamp without
actually changing the value.
