Is there a clear definition of what "non-compliant" data is?

Is it (a) based on the last user to edit an object, or (b) is an objected 
tainted if it was touched at any point by a declining user?

If (b), must the object be removed and then re-created (with a different 
object ID)? And why is that object conceptually any different than (a)?

Is a way tainted if any of the nodes it references is tainted?

Is a relation tainted if any of its members (or its members' members, etc.) 
are tainted?

I'm sure there is a long discussion of these issues somewhere, but a 
concise answer to these specific questions seems necessary in order to know 
how to reconcile.
