Difficulty is, Tagwatch doesn't even know or care *where* those 
occurences are. It just generates OSMXapi links "find all occurrences of 
key=value" and OSMXapi then supplies location (for all x occurences in 
one go). So what needs to be done is put an option in JOSM to talk to 
OSMXapi, then make *this* remote-controllable so that Tagwatch could 
have a link "instruct JOSM to load these from Tagwatch".
