Yes. This would be a good service for an *external* service to offer. It 
is a bit expensive to compute, and the bounding box offered by the API 
is just meant to be a quick "index" that gives you an idea of which 
changesets could be relevant to the bbox you are looking at.

Anyone who is interested could analyse the change feeds coming from the 
API and tell you exactly which changesets affect any area of interest, 
and could also handle e-mail notifications etc. - this is not something 
that needs to, or indeed should, be in the central database.

Bye
Frederik
