No, nobody is going to get banned for just one action. But if they
consistently go around deleting things because *they* didn't see the
thing, and are counselled that that is not how we do things, and
persists in doing it (and advising others to do it), yeah, deleting
things that can be seen is reason to ban somebody, just as is any
other kind of damage to the map data.
