Hi Nick,

The quality of these building footprints looks great, and it's the
kind of thing I personally like to see imported because it's tedious
to trace them accurately and difficult/impossible to capture them with
GPS. And as you mentioned it can assist future placement of shops,
amenities, etc.

However, from downloading and looking at a random area in JOSM, I'm
seeing some problems. You can't tell from the renders, but many
buildings are there more than once as separate overlapping objects.

It looks like the problem objects all have a 'sby:bldgtype' tag and no
other tags, so it should be a straight-forward fix. I not exactly sure
the best way to go about that, though.
