[OSM-talk] raw GPS points: editable?

I'm not allowed to ride my scooter on some highways in Korea so I've
walked up the
sides of the embankments to get waypoints for the ends of the overpasses
here. If you didn't know what I was doing you might think it was bad data.

In addition to downloading tracks as layers we should also be able to
download waypoints and notes. Notes for the track and notes for an
associated set of waypoints.

I think in most cases if I know what a track represents I can show or
not show that track
based on the notes and waypoints.
