[Talk-GB] 'C' class roads references.

I am a bit surprised that an editing war or even a block would even be 
considered in this case!  

This user has been editing from 2009 and has 11k edits under their belt.  They 
are obviously very passionate and dedicated to OSM and have gone to a lot of 
trouble and spent a lot of time to research the road reference numbers.

I really do believe you are going to hit a lot more resistance to this bulk/
mass edit and are quite frankly going to really annoy a lot of long time 
contributors in the process.  I also know for a fact if you made this edit in 
N. Ireland, I would be doing the same thing as tms13 is doing. 

How can this issue be resolved without alienating and driving away long time 
contributors to OSM?

With kind regards,
