Was going to suggest exactly that: a server to run data queries like that
would be great. Something like what cloudmade does: generate weekly extracts
of important regions or features. Important being discussed on the list
and/or voted on by the community.
Perhaps someone wants a shapefile with all the motorways in Western Europe
or a MySQL dump of all amenity=* POI for the state of Alaska.
Make it easier to get access (in OSM and more popular formats) to our data.
