In Germany we say: don't touch an object just for cleanup.
Cleanup without any other modifications (e.g in geometry) will change
the timestamp of that object (last changed!!!) and somebody may think:
this way has been modified last week - so i don't need to check the
geometry or the speed limit or something else.
Ok, if you really change something, THEN you should cleanup old/unused tags.
