The underestimation is probably worse than that as JOSM stoped
creating created_by's at all a while ago.

I'm not at all familiar with the JOSM codebase but it looks like the
changes in OsmServerWriter.java here are the cause.
Now only the changeset gets a created_by tag but since api 0.6 isn't
hear yet I guess they just get ignored.

So anybody using josm-latest that is less than 5 months old won't be
adding created_by tags at all.
