This is my fault, Steve. I ran the import but the bulk upload script I used
had problems with the way I had created the OSM files (they assumed that
negative IDs were globally unique across all primitives, I assumed that they
were unique across a primitive type). I tried removing the empty nodes, but
I obviously missed some (most) of them.

I don't really have time to go back and fix my mistake (just started a new
job), but it won't happen in the future (at least from me).

PS: Perhaps someone could start a thread on osm-dev to brainstorm ideas for
a "bulk import/change" application/website that does something like what the
French import people did to find areas that might have already been mapped
and show an overlay of what the new data would look like. Bulk imports like
the NHD stuff could happen through that...
