If someone made the effort to physically survey it and properly tag
it, I think it's OK.

There are already so many GBs in the planet that does not correspond
to objects physically located at the indicated location. Objects
tagged with 'tiger:...=...', 'attribution=...', or
'junction=junction'. Nodes tagged as coasline. A few more bulk uploads
will not make a big difference.
