Except those humans who could have used that outdated thing as a marker
to tell them that the map is dated.

Yes they could look at the last modification date of things or analyze
how many contributors the area has or myriad other OSM insider things.
But seeing a "Domino's Pizza" on the map doesn't need an API, or insider
knowledge, it doesn't even need a web site - it is the universal
language of map dating.

Automatically fixing that is like a car salesperson fixing a leak with
bubble gum because it looks better and they can't be bothered to fix it
