Sounds good.
I suggest filtering the data to only include gps-fixes with hdop<1.5
so only reasonably accurate locations get added.

A tag "car truck" or "car delivery" could help, so when trying to use
the tracks for other purposed, we know that it was a heavy vehicle or
a delivery-vehicle stopping every few minutes. (That could actually be
very nice data to start my real-world-travel-times webservie with. :) )

Also please post the user-name, so we know what new tracks to look at
in order to generate roads.
