The point is that "storing OSM data with osmosis" is not a meaningful 
thing to do in and of itself.

Osmosis is a tool for moving OSM data around, and one of the formats 
it's supports is the API database which is primarily useful if you're 
working on the API code and want to load data into a test database.

If you're not doing that then you probably want to design a schema 
suitable for whatever it is you're trying to do, and then find a way to 
load into that schema.
