#9253 new enhancement

Easy merging of 2 objects

I take care in repairing issues in OSM maps introduced by the mappers.
My profile: ​ ,about 900 sets uploaded, most of them around 100 corrections at a time.

Quite often lines and points share same information, but not all and should be merged.
A building (fire station)
A point inside with info like address, ...
I would like to merge all tags into the building and delete the single point inside ( reports such issues as errors)

How about an easy way to do that:
1) select both objects
2) offer merge functionality for tags
3) delete the point that is now obsolete

If merging was already possible in JOSM, please delete this ticket, I always copy tags and add them to the 2nd object

The "Replace Geometry" function of utilsplugin2 exactly does this but only onto one new object [id=0].

Maybe it is time again to move some functions into core.
