I agree that survey are that on-premise survey is the best review method.
But then you are adressing armchair mapping as a whole and not specifically
search-and-replace edits.

There are instances where a survey is not necessary, and the information
needed to perform the modification is available on imagery, website or open
data, so the need to be on the premises is limited. But again this does
apply to all armchair mapping.
