[OSM-dev] Some API questions

There are a few areas where the current API (as implemented) is not
quite kosher.

For example, there is a method to get multiple nodes at once, but
nothing equivalent for segments or ways.

If you fetch a segment or a way, you get a timestamp attribute. If you
fetch a node, you don't. However, if you do a bbox request, you get
timestamps on the nodes and ways, but not the segments.

Also, the bbox method produces a "bounds" tag, which is not documented

Are these bugs to be fixed? If nobody minds, I'd like to update the
Wiki page so that the example outputs match what the server actually

Have a nice day,
