Automated fixes need to be done with caution. Some are simple, for example,
zip codes on highway which are likely artifacts from an import. Since we
don't add postal codes on highways they can be deleted.

I was just trying to point out that JOSM has had automatic fixes built in
for some time where iD is just catching up.
