Now there's 11...  I love this. Thank you Simon! This concept removes  
a lot of indecision.

My only question is - when is it safe to click the "Done" button?   Is  
it just for the definition and connection of the geometry of streets  
and major features, etc.. ?   I just marked an area as "Done", but  
there's unnamed streets.
