You're joking?!

The entire OpenStreetMap could be waved away with the phrase "surely
you can just look around you". Why tag speed limits, just look as
you're driving. Why map shorelines, just walk around til your feet get
wet. Why map bus stops, just look around you.

To give just one obvious counter-example: exact locations of shelters,
in particular of bus stop shelters, could be very useful for those
with visual disability (e.g. severe shortsightedness).
