Yes that would be far preferable, and I did message this user. That
doesn't address the immediate question of how to attempt QA on these two
changesets. And the larger problem of other users making similar
changesets, in this city and thousands of other densely mapped places on
the planet, is still looming.

I can (and do) plead with people to keep changesets small, but the
nature of the process has changed. Before, a casual making hundreds of
changes in a single changeset was pretty rare, because they'd actually
have to *make* hundreds of changes. Now they just have to agree to them
-- and as far as they can tell they're being asked to do so by OSM
itself, so it's highly likely they will.

(And sidebar -- I like the idea of the
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Good_practice page including some
advice about keeping changsets to a manageable size -- both number of
changes and geographic area. Something to point to when trying to make
the case for smaller changesets.)
