Doh!  In my haste to "untaint ways," it is entirely possible this is 
exactly what I am doing, too.  I'm using a rapid editing technique 
which does untaint ways, but which after reading your comment, it 
appears I am leaving points still tainted.  OSM Inspector is helpful 
in seeing the "error of my ways" (uh, of error of the POINTS) and I 
fear that I am not the only one making this mistake.  Thank you for 
calling this to our attention.

This makes what is "simply tedious" border on the realm of "utterly 

EVERY SINGLE POINT?  Ugh!  (Why does so much have to be difficult?)
