Hello all,


I'm mapping mostly in Southern California where I live and hike, and
sometimes I run across nodes with no tags, not part of anything, often the
owned by some kind of bot.  You can't see them directly in OSM, but in JOSM
there's a trail of them paralleling Santiago Truck Trail:




Most of them are by bots - OSMF Redaction Account, woodpeck_fixbot - and
they appear to be spurious, but I'm not sure if they are there for a reason.


Is there ever any benefit in a standalone node with no tags, especially if
it doesn't appear to be in an "interesting" location relative to underlying
