This is new information, ie the way that was originally here now has a 
bridge, roundabout, whatever, in the middle and is composed of the two 
ways either side of it.  It's not as Nick suggest that the original 
information is changed in it's entirety only certain sections that are 
new info and hardly the fault of the person editing as it's part of the 
way osm works.

unlikely to receive the information that these edits will be lost.
