I *think* the Geonames project is about setting up some sort of tile  
source that has Geonames data on it, thus avoiding importing it to  
OSM; *maybe* it would try to put only stuff on the tiles where OSM  
hasn't got its own data so this would make an nice extension to OSM  
without license problems. But all this is very vague at the moment.
