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.
