i'm afraid most of the bacolod edits are still illegit. i did a short 
analysis (of 
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=10.676&lon=122.952&zoom=12) in josm:

* user "rgarchitorena" said he used josm to trace over copyrighted 
imagery [1]

[1] http://www.mail-archive.com/talk@openstreetmap.org/msg27700.html

* the 2 "traces" by hithere are no gps traces (too big, including a long 
stretch of coastline, no jags, stops, and other typical gps features), 
but converted from something else.

looking at some (josm) edits of these top 5 users (and overlaying them 
with google maps), the 0 numbers of traces, the dates of first and 
especially last edits (eugene's "Bacolod is still a big problem" thread 
[2] was started on 2010-05-08, some emails were sent - and suddenly 4 of 
the top 5 contributors stop editing), the commit messages - makes me 
believe that most of the edits of rgarchitorena, hithere, gogols, 
jim1807 - or 72% plus (that's only looking at the first 5 users) of 
bacolod edits are illegit.
