Sounds like I'm bang to rights there! Most of what I add to OSM
(footpaths, trees, whether a local pub has a stone floor and a real fire
etc.) could be exactly described as "maximising benefits for a minority
of users". Worse, the local OSMers all seem to be doing the same thing
- shops, house numbers, a borderline obsession with tunnels, but
everyone has different ideas of what to do, so that somehow a wide range
of things are covered.
