The biggest culprit is probably the residential maxspeed=50  
maxspeed:source=default(etc) edit - should we start by removing this  
one (removing just this change while leaving other subsequent edits  
intact)?. This will probably need to be done in a few steps:

1. If the maxspeed and maxspeed:source tags have not been touched  
since, then just remove these tags from the culprit changeset.

2. If the maxspeed has been changed since, then remove the tags from  
the culprit changeset, making sure the new versions remain (e.g. some  
maxspeeds I have corrected to 60, correcting the source tag at the  
same time).

3. For some ways, the maxspeed is correct; for the ones I have come  
across I have changed the source tag (usually to source:maxspeed=sign,  
although some have been maxspeed:source=sign (or =voice)) - can we  
remove the tags from the culprit changeset, adding the maxspeed to the  
later changeset where the source tag was corrected (as it should be  
obvious that I reviewed the maxspeed when adding the source tag)?
