hmm... that might have come across wrong - did not mean to imply you
doing anything wrong, just mentioned an approach seen before with other
mappers, and it seemed like a simple thing to check - maybe even meant
more for a casual list-reader who might get an impression that driveways
are not welcome in osm.

sorry if the sparse message did not transfer that well between our
cultures - i'll put the blame about the short content without smalltalk
on the lack of time ;)
