There's rarely a good time for that :)

That's where we disagree after all :/ One of the driving idea behind
osm is continuous improvement. Highly detailed areas that have been
touched by a single mapper are probably the minority. Glueing landuse
nodes to highway nodes is only valid the same way that drawing a
generic squarre where you know there is a building of some shape is
valid. As an end result (fsvo "end"), glueing nodes is *not* valid, as
should be painfully obvious when checking against highres imagery.

I've repeated myself many times in this thread; more text would
probably not change entrenched opinions, so this is my last reply on
the subject. Go contribute instead.
