Perfection is not a possibility and shouldn't be the goal.  Usefulness  
is definitely the goal.  As OSM becomes more and more useful, more and  
more people will pay attention to it, and contribute to it.  Don't  
sweat the small stuff like villages and hamlets.  Make the map better,  
and as you do, sooner or later, somebody who came from that village  
will want it on the map, and will correct it.
