I am currently implementing a client for OSM api.
At this point I can handle all calls that do not requiere authentication.

In the documentation of API v0.6 : 
"The API is currently accessible using the following URL: 
*http://api.openstreetmap.org/* If you want to test your software 
against the API you should consider using 
*http://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/* instead of the live-api."

I am wondering if I can test my code against this server : 
*http://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/* ?
Can I mess up on this server ? like transactions that modify datas ?
Or must I use something else ?
