Sam, can you describe to me the steps taken to be able to copy a
node/way from one layer to another in JOSM? I've asked a couple times,
and no one has been able to tell me how to accomplish this task. The
closest answer so far has been to merge both layers.

BTW, how come sometimes the OSM download gets pulled in as a new
layer, and sometimes it ends up merged into the existing layer?
