It is indeed “not such a bad idea,” as I know personally and from and with others I have mapped with in this project that if I / we can get 85%, 90%, 95% of “what is right” into the map (leaving the other fraction not WRONG, but perhaps “mildly incomplete,”) that is a worthy contribution to OSM. Getting it to 98%, 99% and yes, 100% “another day” is OK. It isn’t ideal, but I’ll take “95% correct” in a map compared to “0% and I’m lost…" any day of the week. 95% earned me an A in school, anyway, and while I do strive for an A+ or perfection, I’ll take 95% if I can’t achieve 100% “today.”

85% of all data in an area that can be entered into OSM, or just 85% of,
say, lane counts, speed limits, etc?
