Ah I now see where you proposed this.  You should first contact the
original authors in any case.

It is a shame to lose all the work done when it is easy to retag
properly.  On the other hand it didn't seem too precise and could be
easier to replace than improve.  In any case I wouldn't delete it
before having something to replace the data.  It is orthogonal to the
highway centerlines -- one can exist without the other but eventually
both are useful and both will be added at some point.

Best regards
