First things first, more GPS tracks are definitely useful, even if 
there's no other information recorded.  For example, if I've walked from 
A to B and recorded one GPS track, and no-one else has been there (which 
is true a lot of the time) then anything that I plot is going to be 
iffy.  More traces automatically uploaded (to somewhere, somehow) from 
more people would be really useful.

However, even when you've only recently been somewhere it's sometimes 
difficult to decide how to record something properly (i.e. 
footway/bridleway/cycleway/path vs track, surface, etc.).  Obviously any 
extra information is useful to add to yours if you've been there, but 
I'm not sure that I'd want to add data for places that I hadn't been to 
based on someone else's track recording.

Besides (notwithstanding the rubbish weather of the last couple of days) 
the nights are getting lighter and I don't fancy spending more time in 
front of a keyboard than I need to!
