AIUI only a small amount of Andy Street's work (I don't see the point of
pussyfooting around, we all know who it is!) is OS-derived. And, with the
best will in the world, any monkey like thee or me can trace from OS
OpenData, but Andy's footpath surveying work is excellent and it would be a
shame to lose it because of an unrelated issue.

Would a sensible solution be for LWG and/or any other volunteers to work
with him on identifying the affected changesets; for those changesets to be
retained; and for the remainder to remain 'declined' and be dropped in early

After all, at the very least, OS OpenData was only released in April 2010,
so it's actually impossible that any of his edits before then are in doubt.
