If we start doing some major enhancements to taxiways we are going to have to 
store them in another file and format anyway.

That is a good feature that I'll keep in mind when I'm playing around with 
some ideas I have.

I suggest that changes made override the "official" data until someone has a 
chance to review the problem airport. We can't have people spending hours 
building nice taxiways and then having the runways dancing around the place 
every time there is an update.
I know I would be a little upset if I've spent 100 hours building taxiways and 
10% of them no longer line up with the runways 6 months down the line.
