OSM data would be of lower quality, maps rendered from OSM data would be low quality
(at least in places where everyone agrees that parking is not part of cemetery).

Use of OSM data would require manual fixup to undo such damage before use
(in cases where cemetery geometries are important).

Hopefully people are not going to do THAT.

and reading articles about such problems...
