[Talk-us] Double Mapping - Point and Polygon

It seems that some things in OSM have been mapped twice, once as a
point and once as a polygon.  Here is an example:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=40.42939&lon=-105.31262&zoom=17

The example appears to be from two different imports: NHD and GNIS,
but I have seen other things, such as parking lots, mapped twice in
this fashion as well.  In these cases do we want to keep both, or
delete the point?  If we delete the point, should its tags be merged
with the polygon?

Thanks,
Mike
