Err, some thoughts after some heavy note-closing in France.

Dos and don'ts section does not validate this in the wiki : « Don't use 
it to put your personal notes here. ». Rather use personal stuff like 
gpx files or whatever. Many personal notes just get forgotten (where is 
this filtering tool showing /my/ notes? Ha, doesn't exist, I forgot...)

Sure, but I've never seen an answer to a note asking for re-surveying, 
excepted for the creator when asked for details. In my opinion, just 
congesting the database.

Don't want to go too fast, as I presenting some work done on notes in 
France at SotM-FR next week-end, but forecast some additional info on my 
diary page afterwards.
