Here is a suggested compromise. Why don't we replace all the road names of
unverified or suspected traces over there with FIXME's. (that way, they
becomes temporary 'reference data' only)

Then we send gpstogo(plus paper map) and my old garmin 76 gps to Bacolod,
and make a game out of this situation. Bacolod volunteers will hunt down &
RIDE/BIKE OVER all 'FIXME roads' & COLLECT additional POI's & streetnames
along the way. Then we teach them how to upload traces (or just email back
raw data for processing by more experienced osm users).

We'll just make customized Bacolod gps map (for download), small enough to
load even on older map-capable garmins like gpsmap76. I'll lend my extra
bike mount (for use by bacolod mappers)... but they must return it back  :-)

If we can only replicate (similar) osm teams/groups in Bacolod and other key
cities which meet and arrange EB's only regular basis to exchange ideas
(like what we do in Metro Manila), then we will be able to cover the entire
philippines much faster.... (the osm way).
