(it is easy to make mistake with mass replaces, but if done well it can be useful)

in other words: ask local community of mappers of a given area (usually a country)
for automatic[1] replacements, it is better to ask also for large scale ones even if done

[1] mass tag replaces using JOSM and level0 without reviewing individual elements
definitely qualifies
