You might want to take a look at this one:

<node id='26608538' timestamp='2007-03-18 17:29:10' lat='51.4775'
    <tag k='icao' v='EGLL' />
    <tag k='is_in' v='London,England,UK' />
    <tag k='type' v='civil' />
    <tag k='place' v='airport' />
    <tag k='aeroway' v='airport' />
    <tag k='iata' v='LHR' />
    <tag k='source' v='Gagravarr_Airports' />
    <tag k='name' v='Heathrow' />

I suspect many people wish that Heathrow was at this location...
