that's fine, and I've been doing that for Panama, and for Morocco, but I 
do not like mapping without having reached a consensus.

for that, we need other mappers to contribute to the discussion, and I 
never managed to get any far on this in the wiki (actually, not even in 
the changeset comments).  in particular Panama, none of the local 
mappers seem to use the wiki, just check the authorship statistics.  I'm 
not complaining, I'm stating an observed fact.  there's cultures where 
reading is more common than in others.  I'm generalizing, which will 
always have counterexamples, but if you ask children here (Latin 
America) about a fairy tale, if they know it, they will tell you if they 
have **seen** it, not read it.

so you say: just revolutionize the overview for the highway tag, without 
first reaching a consensus?  or I understood you wrong? or replace the 
Eurocentric pictures with Panama and Morocco pics? an edit like this 
will be reverted after 15 minutes!
