I can't speak for Gerald, but my point was more about verifiability
than about "verifiedness". That is, about the question whether a way
can _in principle_ be verified vs. whether it actually _has_ been
verified. The latter we will have to live with in large parts of
Canada; the former I have reservations about. And according to Stewart
this is a problem for many of the ways in question here.
