I have found situations in the past where maps showed bridges that had been planned, but, even decades later, were never actually built.

Not sure you got my point (I should have used a smiley). I don't want to
put anything into osm that is just lines on a blueprint in a drawer at
the municipality. I map what's on the ground. When (if) those streets
actually get built then I will map them.
TeleAtlas apparently got those plans from the municipality and promptly
included them in their database as if those streets are already there.
May lead to a few confused TomTom users in that area :-)
