[OSM-dev] [API] Suggestion: Baselines

I see a lot of mails regarding reverting changesets et al.

Now that we have a version number for each object, wouldn't the next logical
step be creating baselines?

It could be actual baselines, i.e. saving every x min/hours the version
numbers of every objects in the db and adding a baseline number to the
options of a bbox download.
It could also be adding a date to the options of the bbox, allowing to
download the state of the objects at a given time by plain browsing of the
Or both...

What do you think?
