NO!  I am putting the emphasis on the bullying that is going on in the
community under the guise of correctness.  You took it upon yourself
to allege an automated edit in the talk on the change set.  Now you
brought your war here.  You want to roll back someone's work just
because you think you are right yet you cannot say that you have
surveyed the ground either.  That's my objection!  We are an open
source project that should be building on each other's work.  I agree
that the tagging is wrong in the original and the change.  I disagree
with how you are handling the situation.  The better way forward is
not a revert the change but to change the tagging to highway=crossing;
crossing=unmarked; FIXME=Please adjust this crossing by adding other
tags or changing the crossing tag.
