[talk-au] Aboriginal art sites

How do we actually contact "local elders"?  Where do we record their
consent?  What if they change their minds?

Are we saying other mappers should delete these sites if they see them on
the map?  How do they know if approval was obtained?

Or is this just intended as a guideline, and not be enforced?

It seems all a bit impractical to me.  The information is out there.

is this form of censorship practised anywhere else in OSM - maybe for other
indigenous people - that we could copy their model?

P.S. It's Strait - not "Straight".
