Because the openlayers package won't ever be updated to a new upstream
release because OpenLayers 2 is EOL upstream for quite a while, and
OpenLayers 3 and later are too painful to package due to its Node.js
dependency chain, this is a good reason to use updated layers from osm.org.

Your patch makes it so that you cannot switch layers to compare the
local tiles to the osm.org ones, because you break the Mapnik layer:

 layerMapnik = new OpenLayers.Layer.OSM.Mapnik("Mapnik");

If you really want to fix the privacy-breach instead of just adding an
override, include the OpenStreetMap.js file in the package.
