I think this position should be a bit more nuanced.  Taken to absurdity,
OSM map with a one percent of roads is far worse than having 101% of the
roads mapped with the help of AI with 1% of extras, because fixing that 1%
is far less work than adding 99% by hand.  I'm sure we can find a good
balance between both positions.
