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.
