I'm not arguing that life is easy with parcels. I'm questioning the majority statement.

If anything parcels will be hard. That's a good thing. If we want to take the easy route we should give up now.

I know tools can be improved, but still parcels have very little relation to any other feature, even landuses, fences, etc. often don't line up. The only way I'd like to see parcel data added to OSM is if the concept of layers is added to the API. Then we'd have a landuse layer, a parcel layer, a ??? layer, and an everything else layer.
