Great, looks really promising!
Let me comment on the user interface:
* It would be good to cancel the current operation if you click on the
map or another object.
* If you click an object far right, it is hidden by the dialog, which
is kind of strange.
* A highlighting on mouse-over would be very fancy.
* Allow to click POIs that are part of a way.
Another thing I noticed: It creates a new changeset for every operation.
It should remember the changeset and add subsequent requests to it.
I recommend you have a look at the JOSM presets. They are quite
comprehensive have been actively maintained for a long time.
