There is... this is something I'd consider a contentious edit but not
*strictly* incorrect.

The author of the changeset should have consulted the US/Canadian
community before making it, and if he had done so, would have seen
that he should have added an operator= or some other tag indicating
that this is a commercial entity as per
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Post_office


Personally, I don't agree with this new nclassification, but it's not
*wrong* per se, just the way it was done is not the way we (as a
community) should be going about such things.
