I notice these changesets were completed in 30/60 seconds respectively.
I don't use iD. How is this possible? Does it have a JOSM like mass edit 

   I don't see asking users to split the changesets as a solution to 
what is the clear problem of mass adding/amending tags to 
unknown/undocumented ones.
