This is of course a political as well as a practical issue.  I'll
stick to the practical level. 

On the practical level this is a data file, and one maintained at a
public site.  I'd expect users/developers would like to import updates
directly from there.

In this situation I wouldn't *want* to fix bugs by changing it,
because such changes would be lost with the next update.  I would
rather put fixes into a second file and read that after the original
to override the orignal values.
