I think the issue is foremost that it is nowhere written down what this 
message exactly is so it is difficult to make the judgement what do do 
with it.
For instance the OSMI page about address checks [1] nicely lists error 
messages but the page about tagging errors [2] only describes possible 
messages and for water [3] there is not even that.
