They said that they were going to do some additional training for their
staff.  They did give some indication they would make some changes, but I
didn't follow up. Part of the problem is that another, non local, mapper
got really enthusiastic a couple of years ago about changing all unpaved
roads to highway=track.  Amazon Logistics people see this, and if they are
adding a road, they perhaps compare it to the existing content nearby, and
try to mimic that tagging.
