just thinking about to delete correct data is disrespecting the work of 
others on every level.

until OSM will switch to the long overdue pure area-based model for the 
physical features of streets and sidewalks we all have to and will live 
with the current compromise.

and if routers cant cope with the data in osmap, they are free (haha) to 
use data from other places. or get better in working with the free and 
open data provided by the volunteers of OSM.
