Chris, I think that's a bit too dogmatic, if you don't mind me saying.
It seems to imply nothing should ever be tweaked, e.g. spelling
mistakes. It's entirely possible that the key in question was a simple
misremember rather than a deliberate choice. There have been many
larger mechanical edits applied, officiated by the imports list I
think. Or one could check with the mapper(s) who did the tagging in
