1. Not valid. The list of versions of an entity clearly shows it's
history. Some software being unable to show the history or a user being
unaware of how to look it up, is *not* the responsibility of the
contributor making the edit.
2. Not valid. A destination between 'popularity' (the tag most used now)
& majority (the tag most used overall). Being a majority due to previous
popularity doesn't make it best one to use today. Changing a poorly
conceived tag to a more useful, accurate one is a *genuine* edit to
improve the quality of the OSM database, not a 'fiddle'.
