Great can you make it available?

The only way OSM handles metadata is through tags on nodes or
segments, right now that is used to set the name of the street. You
could use this to place your data on the OSM map, for later use.
Highly inefficient but it works now-
Just create a OSM node for each entry in your database
http PUT this into the database.

No not in the applet editor that is used on the webpage.
