This has needed a tidyup for a long time.

> many people will be reading that.
> * I'd like to rename (move) Protocol to API on the Wiki:
> OSM_Protocol_Version_0.6 -> OSM_API_Version_0.6. API is the commonly
> used word and it had been decided earlier to move from "Protocol" to
> "API" on the Talk page so this would only be for consistency.
> * I'd also like to remove the OSM Protocol Stack Overview part and the
> HTTP Protocol Specification from
> http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/API. I believe they are more
> confusing than they are helpful. A description of the HTTP protocol is
> certainly unneccesary and the description might suggest to newcomers
> that OSM somehow uses a different HTTP implementation ("The desciption
> of the HTTP Protocol as used by OpenStreetmap"). If it was up to me
> I'd completely delete
> http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/HTTP_Protocol_Specification as it
> serves no current or historical purpose. But I think that would have
> to be done by an administrator.
> Any comments? Anyone opposed?
> Cheers,
> Lars
