I favour the definitions used on the English Wikipedia, which make it
clear that vandalism is deliberate harm, and that any well-intentioned
edit, even if incorrect, is not vandalism, because:

    If an editor treats situations which are not clearly vandalism as such, it
    may harm the encyclopedia by alienating or driving away potential editors.
