My current understanding is, that we don't want to auto-reject anything
because some street already is near the data.

Instead, tools will be improved to easily solve such things by hand. You
should be able to easy merge two existing streets into one, if you are
convinced both describe only one physical street.

We need more coders! ;-)

Ciao, Imi.
