I was thinking the same..... :o :)
And with Shift-Z you can also see the actual turns not allowed on the editor.

That's an extra step for someone to remember during scanning. And one that most editors won't do -- Shift-Z mode is great when I remember to do it, but most of the stuff I find with WMECH and Validator are incidental to editing things nearby to the issues they highlight for me. Normal editing has Shift-Z off.

IMO, this may lead editors to "fix" errors with a 'w' tap which aren't actually errors.

You are correct. Along with highlighting of recent edits and edits by specific user.

what is an "incomplete turn" and how is it different from a "soft turn"?

SuperDave: I'm pretty sure that was already noted -- the feature was removed when the beta went live because it was a fundamental change.

Unfortunately, given that Timbones is based in the UK, I suspect we're still a while before the new system is implemented -- "Places" only went live on the NA server. The ROW and IL servers are still a few weeks away, apparently.

I hope Tim will choose to reimplement that feature -- I really liked it, especially for finding smudges being caused by landmarks. We will have to see, though!
