I agree. I find it hard to tell the necessity of further immediate rollbacks
until the "maxspeed rollback" is done.

Is this rollback technically possible?

Perhaps going forward it would be possible to rollback the changes of those
who have made it clear that they will not accept the new terms?  Then later
look at those who have currently declined the terms or have yet to choose.

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)?
