The conclusion I've come to about people overly mapping is this, what
harm will it cause?

This recently came up with respect to using areas to map out road
ways, this has potential to be harmful unless there is a way as well,
there is a lot of meta information that exists, things like lanes that
areas can't encode.

Also foot paths don't always align with road ways, so it's not
possible to map all footways by tagging a road way.
