In case of major highway editing, tracks are usually available and
that helps to resolve this ambiguity. But in case of uncertainty it
always possible to leave the error alone. Even if we get 70% of this
problems fixed it's better than what we have now in many states. Based
on my experience, there are about 500-3000 errors of this type per
state and only tens of them are non-obvious to fix.
