[Talk-us] Redaction affected ways map

Hi Martijn,

I believe you are not showing ways deleted by redaction; any way to add
indicators for this situation to your display ?

for example.

The additional road class information, as well as the specificity of the
map, is quite important to help folks focus; could the OSMI view be
enhanced to include highway=motorway/primary/secondary/tertiary/all else
filters ?

Also, every time I click a link on
http://lima.schaaltreinen.nl/redactionI'm getting a new JOSM layer,
which is suboptimal, IMHO.  Perhaps this
could behave as OSMI JOSM links do ?
