I've fixed the wiki to reflect Chris's comments, given that he's a resident
of Wales and has a long pedigree in creating the Welsh-language rendering so
is better qualified than the rest of us to pronounce on this.[1] The much
shorter text should hopefully also be easier for new mappers to follow.

Absolutely not - everyone is and should be welcome. But it's generally good
practice in OSM, whatever the country, to "be liberal in what you add,
conservative in what you change". If you find yourself changing vast swathes
of existing data, you should generally ask yourself why it was as it was.
Sometimes there's a good reason, but that reason is usually TIGER!


[1] though I'm not going to completely absent myself from this given that I
partly have a degree in this stuff, as part of which I was fortunate enough
to be taught by people who know more about Brittonic placenames than pretty
much anyone ;)
