I realize this changeset was an import done years ago, but I am going to ask my question anyway.
and the http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1042028604
Are these 'seaplane' bases real things? What is the criteria for something to be a 'seaplane' base (other than registering it with the CFS) A guy with a private dock that keeps an airplane on it but offers no physical aviation amenities doesn't seem to deserve a tag as an aerodrome. There are lots of docks with seaplanes on lake vernon.
I haven't been to that part of Lake vernon in a few years but I don't recall any noticeable aviation infrastructure should these nodes be deleted, it isn't as if there is a runway or hanger.
You should not put meta data, like "(Under Construction)" in the name field, see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Names#Name_is_the_name_only
You should use landuse=construction then construction=<eventual main tag>. You should not include tags, which, in the absence of the construction tag would result in a valid main tag, as renderers may not act on the construction tags
In this case, the next level should probably be construction=aerodrome, although I think you can also do construction=aeroway; construction:aeroway=aerodrome.
"New" in the name should also only be used if the construction site has a name and it appears in that name.
