Mechanical edit Proposal to clean up obvious typos in area=* tag

I just realized that there are a lot of litte mistakes in the values of area=* tags. There are objects mapped with "area"="yesaccess=private" (12x), "area"="yesarea=yes" (10x) or similar obvious typos. So someone was trying to set 2 tags but accidently set only one of them with a not sensfull value. You can find about 70 of these by searching for “yes” in taginfo.

I would like to clean that up. I would change "area"="yesaccess=private" to "area"="yes" + "access"="private". I would do the same to all of the other obvious typos where area=* got mearched with an additional tag.

Does anyone see a problem with this?
