                <p><font face="Verdana">I was recently working on some
                    local proposals and, through taginfo, saw some
                    recent spikes in the use of the non approved and
                    discouraged use of the road key (should be highway).<br>
                    The spikes, due to their amount and short time-frame
                    in which they appear seem to be indicating unnoticed
                    mass or automated edits.<br>
                    Do they need closer attention / investigation and
                    action to revert ?<br>
                  </font></p>
                <p><font face="Verdana">1. Jan 2017 - spike of +-500,
                    seems to be reverted by +-300 by Mar 2017<br>
                    2. Mar 2019 - spike of +-400, not reverted<br>
                    3. Sep/Okt 2020 to Feb 2021 - spike of +-800, not
                    reverted and continuing at a worrying rate</font></p>
                <p><font face="Verdana">These 3 spikes together make up
                    3/4 of the total use cases of the road key.<br>
                  </font></p>
                <p><font face="Verdana">Would appreciate some help with
                    taginfo / overpass trubo / other tools to get more
                    insight on the phenomena.</font></p>
