As mentioned before in this thread, the same holds true of user 
collected and contributed information in OSM, to various degrees. Users 
loose interest, or worse (some have even died), and thus areas fall out 
of maintenance all the time. Waiting for someone else to come along and 
pick it up. -If- someone comes along.
