While you're thinking about GNIS mechanical edits, could I suggest one for
GNIS-sourced POIs with "(historical)" in the name?

There are several gazillion amenity=post_office, name=Fred Creek Post Office
(historical) in the database. Clearly these aren't actually post offices any
more. Ideally I guess they should be disused:amenity=post_office, or
historic:amenity, or something.


I'd do it myself but this is about the one area where you _do_ need JOSM
rather than P2. ;)
