I looked a small sample of the list. For example, way 10012342  in Texas
was only touched by chdr. The name originated with the TIGER import by Dave
Hansen. It doesn't appear to me that at this point a mass deletion, at
least in the US, is appropriate.
As Ian pointed out, using a tool like Maproulette to validate names would
be a more appropriate recourse to insure we chdr did not add copyright
information to OSM. Especially four years later. I believe the US community
can manage to review 18,000 names to insure integrity of our project.
