The format looks fine, thanks.

Now, I have a more bugging "functional" issue:
None of the 2 set of coordinates I specify are part of the way which is

This can be see with just the example on the page: Click "Go" and none of
the node returned = the input nodes.

Assuming a workflow of:
1) create 2 nodes on existing distant roads
2) Run Bing detector with these 2 points to join the roads

Result will be unconnected roads. The start and end nodes coordinates of the
returned road do not match the input point.
The difference is in the order of centimeters, but still, that would force
to implement some "duplicate node in a given radius" logic quite

Possible solution: Assume that start and end of returned way correspond to
the input coordinates.
Is that right?
