I have a python script here:
It converts points, lines, and areas to OSM node/way XML, then applies the
shapefile's data as tag/value pairs. Once you have that OSM data, you can
use JOSM's search feature to do more work on applying OSM-centered tags.
At this point you still need to do the reprojection outside of the script.
