Care to expand a little on the specific changes or is it all documented 
in the 0.6 protocol proposal?

Is there a writeup on the hackathon weekend somewhere? Was it cool? /me 
goes checking the planet.

I agree that going forward is the right thing to do, but I also agree 
with bvh that the announcement was made a bit clumsy in that it would 
have been nice to mail a list of proposed changes to dev, rather than 
put up a wiki page, stating that the API will be changed in 10 days.

The API is the true face of OSM (the maps are just nice wallpaper :-)) 
and therefore changes to it should be made public and suggestions for 
changes should be subject to discussion...
