I prefer that to official_ref. Much clearer origin.

General query:
As there are many of these around the country & auto edits are seriously 
frowned upon by a minority, is there a semi-auto way to edit. For 
instance, can the data be downloaded as XML, amended in a text editor 
(find/replace) & then uploaded to merge with the database? Is that 
possible in JOSM?
