If ClosedStreetMap.com was more than a figment of my imagination we
would store them there, not in OSM, yes.

For example, the NYSDEC_Lands data which I imported is not mapped and
not mappable. DEC *specifically* says that you cannot map it, because
there is no reliable indication out in the field of what lands they
manage. When they buy or sell land, they don't immediately go out and
post or unpost it.

If somebody deleted the NYSDEC_Lands import, I would be unhappy for
about ten seconds, maybe twelve at the outside. It's useful, and it
improves the map, but it belongs in closedstreetmap.com.
