Guessing, from where the other roads are? My thought about the OSM
philosophy towards editing is "incremental improvements, always". If
this would-be user put the road in a slightly wrong place, but with
the correct road name, someone who came along afterwards with a GPS
receiver could see that the road is misplaced, and could move it.
