[OSM-dev] API for local Postgis installs?

One of the things I'd like to do now with Freemap (OSM countryside map) is
develop functionality to allow users to click on a rendered way and get
information about it (e.g. the state of the path), or roll the mouse over a
pub and see whether it's known for good beer etc :-)
Part of this will involve developing a back end which queries the local
Freemap OSM PostGIS install. Obviously this would be of general use to anyone
installing the OSM postgis database locally on their system. Would there be
interest from others in such an API? If so feel free to suggest a few API
calls people would find useful. One (possibly ambitious) idea would be to
allow users to make local changes to the local postgis database and (at the
same time) to OSM, checking to see if OSM has already been modified more
recently than the local database.
