  Keep in mind that there are already people using US OSM data in real 
applications.    By all means, let's move forward, but not burn consumers by 
removing ref* or name* tags to force them to change.   Otherwise we will 
just be laboring like monks to produce a mountain of pure XML that no one 
cares about because it's to difficult to catch a moving specification that 
has no concern for compatibility.
