> We could also create a preprocessor that "unifies" OSM data.
I've been thinkink a lot about an osm pré-processor, but not to solve the
problem you mentionned.
The main problem, to my point of vue, in the duplicates tag case, is not at
developper/renderer side, but at begginers learning to contribute to OSM, and
that is not solvable by a pre-processor ;-)
I mentionned the fact that solving it for begginers will also solve it for a
cheap price at dev/renderer side.

For data uses yes, but not for data feeding.
The idea I was after with a pre-processor was to explicit those so many
default values than need to be hardcoded in every routing software in order
to guess that a motorway is unaccessible to pedestrians.
But that's another story.
