I haven't received any feedback other than what came over the lists.
I'll re-do my analysis and try to take into account changes that people
have made after chdr and where they mentioned a particular source.

Frankly, in those regions where we've just a couple 100 affected roads,
maybe we don't have to do anything at all - the roads will show up on
generic "name missing" debug views like in OSMI, and will be fixed
sooner or later. If we concentrate on countries losing 500 names or
more, that'd be ~ 15 country-wide challenges which should be manageable?
I could make a list of way IDs per country.

I was hoping to get things over with this month which is going to get a
bit tight but I'm still planning that. Unless there's a reason to wait?
