Really?  Whatever happened to "Bold, Revert, Discuss"?  In my
experience a revert of a bad edit is a pretty common thing on
Wikipedia.  It's not until you get to re-reverts or re-re-reverts that
offending someone becomes likely.

In any case, the Wikipedia model somewhat fails as there's no easy way
to revert in OSM.  There's not even a good diff system.
