A lot of states use a graduated locking guideline.

For example:

Military Installation / Airport 4
Hospitals / Urgent Care / Police & Fire Dept 4
National & State Parks and Monuments 4
Gas Stations / Charging Stations 3
Schools / Universities / Colleges 3
Government Buildings / Consulates 3

All Places that have complete information (to include, at a minimum, address/city, hours of operation, phone number) are to be locked at Level 2. This is to prevent loss of data due to automatic acceptance of Place Update submissions from Trusted Users, or Place Update Request approvals from other editors without careful examination.

What I want to prevent is what we saw in Google Maps (and hence the over haul of how Google Maps is edited). We would see spammers or competitors of other businesses come in and change info in the edits, i.e. phone and website, to their information. So when I want to see a certain plumber the info that comes up is that plumbers competition. Now unlike Google Maps Waze is supposed to be for routing and not looking up business info. Where I can see an abuse is moving the Place Markers for Businesses or HNs to areas that they are not supposed to be. Will that make it so the wazer will not get to the destination alright? Probably not, but it will give them a bad experience using the app and may deter them from using it in the future.
