I haven't avoided the issue, I have just refrained from letting you 
label it as "vandalism".

The changeset in question is problematic for two reasons; one is that it 
deletes a (small number of) objects in the US instead of just things in 
Canada, and the other is that even in Canada it deleted more than 
Canadians had decided to delete right now. The first was a technical, 
the second was a communications mishap, and things are being dealt with.

Please note that almost everything deleted by this changeset *will* be 
deleted when the license change comes, unless action is taken to re-map 
the affected objects beforehand.
