Sure, when possible, but this is a belt-and-suspenders situation. The
automated edits code of conduct (
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Automated_Edits_code_of_conduct#Execute_with_caution
) is pretty clear about this:

- Execute only a small number of edits wait for feedback before
proceeding with larger edits.
- One changeset covering the whole planet is hard to read. Changes
grouped into small regions are easiest to digest for human mappers.
