I understand that we don't want to wholesale import data from geonames.org
because that data might be tainted with Google copyright .
How about adding links from *already existing* OSM objects to geonames
objects? That could be a complete URL to the webservice ( for the data
about Antalya) or just the geoname id. The geonames guys told me that the
id should be practically constant.
We also have a GSOC 2008 project  that I'd like to mentor that wants to
sync geonames data with OSM.
