I believe the presence of all these tags is the user clicking through all
the tabs in Potlatch2 and filling changing them from "unset" to whatever
seems to make sense for them.  By convention, we know that streets are
assumed to be two-way and there is no need to add the oneway=no tag, but
now that I look at P2, there's no indication of this and even if you jump
to the wiki, it doesn't really give any suggestion to omit the oneway tag
for two-way streets.


For access restrictions, there's this complicated page which lists defaults
values by country.


I wouldn't expect a new mapper to know that.

I can't honestly decide if this is a real noob (no offense to noobs, I

I'd lean toward a new mapper that needs guidance here.
