...In the UK, the various mappers who own boats quite rightly pointed
out (whilst well-intended) the proposed mechanical transformations
would lead to data-inaccuracies.

My hope was that the owners of the mechanic retaggering bots involved
would carefully reflect upon this advice and instead try to
betterunderstand the subject matter in greater detail beforehand.

It's slightly concerning and disappointing to see on the same mailing
a few weeks later mappers extolling the virtues of having apparently
run forth with mechanical transform without having designed a
fully-worked global solution that was accepted by those with
first-hand knowledge.
