Yes, i agree for this particular situation.

The idea was more as an example that it is not necessary to deploy iD in 
exactly the configuration it is released with on osm.org.

I also think the label "upgrade the tags" is highly misleading for this 
kind of function and the idea of having a button to manually trigger 
this feature but not being transparent about what this actually does is 
not a very good one.  But indeed this is somwhat sidestepping the core 
issue here.
