Nice. Thanks for sharing.
Several possible uses, including zoom level. Max was at one point noodling
over object boundaries and might know about this.

Hi mobile team,
Not sure you've seen this:
Essentially, this is an effort to annotate larger shapes/geometric
objects in OpenStreetMap with Wikipedia articles. It can be seen on
the German Wikipedia on some articles (which uses the toolserver-based
OSM integration), e.g.:
(click the "Karte"
link in the top right corner to open the link and note the geometric
shape which indicates the exact location of the railway).
This might be interesting as a next gen feature for mobile to do even
better highlighting of objects on a map.
