I think the recent McDonald's changeset may need reverting or at least
additional editing:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/7454383

It seems whoever did this did an XAPI query for all objects named
"McDonalds" then did CTRL-A and added/replaced the name with
"McDonald's"

A simple name cleanup. However this also tagged all member nodes of
building outlines with name=McDonald's which is very much an error.

Is this user on the mailing list?
