The API dev servers hold a (old) copy of the main OSM DB, and any changes you 
make there won't have any effect on the main DB.

In other words: you're welcome to play with api06.dev.osm.org. It doesn't 
matter (much) if you break the stuff there.

On the other hand, if you will be doing very intensive computing, you might 
prefer setting up your own OSM API server. Refer to the wiki, and research 
the topic of setting up a "rails port".
