Quite possibly, but as (Andrew Buck has already said) what really 
happened here is that a mapper made a mistake.  It's not a software 
problem so much as a human one - and the way to fix that is to bring all 
mappers (paid or otherwise) into the community, so that they can learn 
from the mistakes that we've _all_ made in the past*, which according to 
the Mapbox page in the wiki, is exactly what they're doing.
