I just happened to discover this changeset that did some major damage to the history for several relations for major highways.  For example, Relation 165600 [1] use to be relation for I-271 (OH), however, this user deleted all that data, and replaced it with an entirely completely different route in Ontario.  Sure, the user did create a 'new' relation for I-271 (Relation 5692605 [2]), however it no longer has it's history of the previous 97 changes to the route, the rouge 'Ontario' route now does.  This was also done to 3 other Interstates, some NY/FL/TX State routes, and several County Routes in various states.

So, I'm curious, what do you guys think we should do here?  I'm kinda thinking of maybe somehow swapping the relation IDs between the routes so that the original ones can have their IDs & history back?  I've already left a message on the changeset of this user, so that base has been covered.
