I think you are misunderstanding the idea of the survey here - this is 
not a vote on a regulation of organized editing, it is meant to gather 
opinions of OSM community members on the matter.  Classifying organized 
editing activities in a fine grained way would be beyond the scope of 
such a simple exploratory survey.

You can be sure the DWG knows that there is a broad range of organized 
editing activities and that even within the definitions given for the 
survey there is room for interpretation.
