Take a look at Walking Papers:
This does a similar thing, but with printouts that can be given to
non-technical mappers to make notes on. You then scan the annotated map
back into Walking Papers, which makes it available as a background in
Potlatch (or JOSM, if you like).
The printouts are just PDFs, so you may already be able to hack
something together using Walking Papers, but certain take a look and
talk to Michal.
