[OSM-talk] proposed mechanical edit - moving FIXME=* to fixme=*

fixme tag is a standard way to mark fixmes.
Editors wishing to finish mapping in their area would (directly or
indirectly, for example using JOSM) look through objects tagged with
fixme tags.

FIXME tag is an unexpected way to mark fixmes, retagging this duplicate to
fixme key would improve tagging without any information loss.

It would make development of QA tools easier as authors would not need to
discover and implement support for this duplicated key.

Between X and Y objects are expected to be edited. See
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/FIXME#map <https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/FIXME#map> for a
geographic distribution.

Changeset would be split into small areas to avoid continent-sized
bounding boxes. As this tag may be on extremely large objects (for example relations representing long routes) it may be unavoidable to make some edits with very large bounding boxes.

Please comment - especially if there are any problems with this idea. 
Please also comment if you support this edit, in case of no response
at all edit will not be made as there would be no evidence that
this idea is supported.
