[OSM-dev] OSM clickable POIs - implementation?

I would like to try and add clickable POIs to OSM (as already exists on
Freemap) so that when you click a village, for example, some info and its
Wikipedia link comes up.
The best way to do this would seem to be to implement code which takes a
lat/lon (or Mercator coord pair) and returns the nearest POI node to it. This
could be turned into an API call, as could a similar method to find the
nearest way to a mouse click. Do people think this is a good idea?
