I remember early mobile devices which used a special web proxy that
would scale down images etc. for web surfers on the move. Would it
not be a good idea to write such a proxy, or even something that
converts OSM XML to a stripped binary transport format? The proxy
could, for example, only send selected tags to the mobile device and
allow only changes in these - when uploading, it would automatically
add back the rest that the mobile device didn't see...
