[openrailwaymap] Mapping/importing milestones

Hello everyone,

does anyone object the following plan?

1. Import the milestones automatically at their current database location
2. Set up a mapping project/request to re-locate the milestones

The advantage is that we have data available for the entire Netherlands until the milestones are mapped at their final location. 

Kind regards,
