The issues aren't to do with whether or not it's a problem, the issues
are to do with Steve's personal liability if anyone uses this info for
evil - openstreetmap.org doesn't have a privacy policy.

I'm in agreement however that this shouldn't stop us giving out data
which includes some way of working out which person edited what, even
if those people are anonymous.  FOAF-style hashes for email addresses
might do the trick?
