I concur with these Cam4rd98 characterizations as I have done similar 
coming to these conclusions.

OSM is a community.  This includes communication amongst its members. 
Frequently, we reach consensus.  We don't do that in a communications 
vacuum.  Reverting changesets by knowledgeable and experienced 
contributors after shouting into the chasm of OSM citizenship is good 
work, especially as it is watched and supported by wider consensus. 
We are building an excellent working map here.

Let us well communicate intention.  OSM doesn't work when it is 
considered a solo map, so we must listen.  Consensus is essential, 
though only occasionally easy.
