I looked a small sample of the list. For example, way 10012342 [1] 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.
