It would be fantastic if Robert / Shaun / Andy / someone else could find the
time to bring these three features together:
- auto matching to save checking every point
- ticking off items where we can safely ignore the disagreement (doesn't

- adding comments that can be collated and sent back to the data provider

Like Shaun I am relaxed about anonymous access.
