Yes, but how many people - upon completing a ground survey and editing
somebody else's objects that have already been added with a "source" tag -
promptly remove or amend that tag? How many people trace features following
a survey and add the tag to bits they traced from imagery, having previously
confirmed that it existed on the ground? It's a handy little tag, but not
exactly reliable.
