  I agree that this is a good strategy for TIGER data, but there was 
also talk of running the bot for all ways, including those having just 
highway= and name= tags.   Everyone will certainly enter "name=Xyz Rd" 
for their first edit.   The JOSM validator will pick this up, but I 
don't remember if Potlatch 2 would notice that.
