Those changes mostly remove dubious data, rather than replacing one 
dubious datum with another.  In a few places dubious data were replaced 
with less-dubious data, but these exceptions were individually justified 
with sources.

In the long run it'd be better to remove dubious data, or at least move 
it to a "dubious" area optionally available to users who prefer it; but 
one step at a time.
