[OSM-dev] Using OSM and namefinder for a webservice

Dear OSM developers,

I'm currently developing a non-commercial website/mobile application which
partly depends on geocoding.

Is it O.K. to use the namefinder data for this?

Is it eligible, to use the namefinder XML interface to translate addresses
to geolocations?

As I expect heavy user load, this could lead to 20.000 requests the day. Is
this too much (I think so) and what can I do to use it anyway?

Kind regards

P.S. I don't mind to use GMaps/Yahoo for this service
