I can't answer a dual question with one answer.

So, NO, OSM is not an ideal world, neither is the real World which we 
map. And even if all it's contributors would be ideal mappers, the 
answer is still NO. The database or storage system must allow 
inconsistency, because our world, OSM and contributors are not ideal.

Second, YES.  It would be positive, if it's voluntary.

So this makes the discussion at least for 50% useful, and 50% pointless ?
