Here is my initial attempt at a script to simplify an OSM file by
removing data which is invisible at high zoom levels. 

The output data should _not_ be fed back to the OSM database. Some data
is lost and corrupted during the simplification process (nodes are
aligned to the grid, segment endpoints are moved to the grid aligned
nodes etc).
