I know we are talking about Apple mappers here, but I wanted to point out
the Amazon Logistics mappers have been very responsive to changeset
comments. However:
1) One of their leaders explained their criteria for a track.  There were
about four, and that was followed with "except for the preceding, we follow
OSM community norms."  I responded that they should always follow community
2) Changeset comments, as is true for a lot of mappers, are not super
helpful, e.g. "Added a track road" (not new information, I could tell that
from the data), and then they cite a generic collection of sources (which
one did you use?). Sometimes the sources don't make sense, such as "Street
Side" when there is no Street Side content in the given area.
