I'd say so what. Just tag them as street_signs, for_mapping,
for_open_street_map or something and upload away.

We could define a node tag that lets you link to a photo taken at that
node - perhaps photo:[type]=http://www.flickr.com/whatever
where type is sign (for a road sign), layout (to illustrate the layout
of the junction), view (for just a normal photo), etc. This would let
you upload the photo anywhere, and make it visible to editors that
wanted to support the tag.
