would you be able to please include a possibility to download data from
osmxapi using tagwatch? Currently links from tagwatch (e.g. for Europe)
point to a download for an osm-file which you can then manually load
into JOSM. However such a link would allow to click on a mis-spelled tag
you find in tagwatch and instantly correct+upload it. (e.g. I've lately
found "namee" which actually meant "name" in the list etc.)
