I prefer stronger language here as well.  In the first draft the 'Access'
section led off with "Explicit access=* tags are recommended...".  I
received feedback that this language was too strong and would encourage
mappers to add fictional access tags.   I think I have overcorrected
though.  As the sentence now starts with "If you have local knowledge or
can do a survey to obtain ground truth, ..."  there should be no issue
finishing with the stronger phrase "... adding explicit access tags is
strongly recommended."
