Hi Tomas,

I think you are underestimating the intelligence of OSM users - I see lots of suggestions but only change the ones I have personal knowledge of. Again, you still need to push the upgrade the tags button so they are not forcing you!

Personally, I am happy they are offering suggestions as I am learning more about the (somewhat confusing) tagging system.

Cheers - Phil

  I think this was already discussed under different "suggestions" of
iD. When editor which looks like "official" makes a suggestion, most
users would think this is the way to go. Very few would go to wiki to
find out that iD suggestion is in no way better.

  Or in other words iD should not suggest change which would give no
benefit to OSM, just benefit to iD developers as this would make tags
easier to code in iD.
