I concur. A huge opportunity for attracting casual mappers if done right.
KISS my OSM or something. Simplicity is the key. Integrated account creation, oauth, abstraction from the map features complexity. No mobile JOSM (in spite of its infinite awesomeness - but think fitness for purpose).
I think a chunk of that fresh round of Cloudmade / Mapquest $$$ would be well spent on a well thought out app. I mean, testing usability with focus groups and all that, that just takes some concentrated effort.
