BUT you can't upgrade the data in that history, only access previous 
data without any reference to if it is correct or not. OHM is not a 
solution to add the missing history, or correcting that history which 
was removed because of mistakes. It is simply a record of what was done 
with all it's mistakes ...

What is needed is a means of adding LAYERS of data which can be managed 
either via third party data sets, or manual edited using existing tools 
to add data that is missing from the narrow view confined to 'current' 
objects ...
