Some users will say that good tagging does not need to be improved. For
newbies glueing polygons to roads will very likely not be good, since they
might experience problems improving the roads and therefore leave the
project. So I would prefer to say that glueing polygons to roads versus
separating is a "mediocre versus preferred" issue
