(Changing the subject line)
The map really needs a SPARQL server (easy), and cross-linking to URIs
in dbpedia or geonames (which are themselves alreday cross-linked)
would be a good idea (but more work).
From outside it looks as though the OSM XML format and API are
developing in the OSM community in a reasonable way. What sort of
help do you think OSM will need? Money to run servers if the load
increases? An existing standards org with facilities and process for
the API and the XML format? What was it you had in mind?
