An editor has cleared the OSL difference analysis in the London Borough of 
Harrow (http://www.itoworld.com/product/data/osm_analysis/area?name=Harrow) 
with the unusually low score of 5 not:names out of 1800. As someone who used 
to live in the area, I find some of the names that were put onto the map 
surpising, for instance the road I’ve always known as Paines Lane 
(http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/8609572). When I asked the editor 
concerned where the names had come from I was told that the names had come 
from OS Opendata and sometimes visits to the streets. Paines Lane may not have 
been one of the streets the editor visited because it is spelt that way on all 
of its street signs.
