The essential discussion here is -- OSM communities can put together plans ahead of this redaction, in order to minimize impact to the map. With sufficient legal process. This seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to plan out, rather than doing a large scale revert and scrambling to clean up after.
The chdr problem has been with us for years. There is little risk in giving slightly more time to plan ahead. Perhaps that is best done country by country. * Mikel Maron * +14152835207 @mikel s:mikelmaron

You are free to express your emotions but I think you are overreaching 
here with comparing a redaction of data in OSM to the grief over a 
serious personal loss.

In case this was not clear the term 'healed' as i used it was referring 
to the legal concept of healing a breach of contract or other legal 
infractions by ceasing some activity or doing something you neglected 
to do before.
