Osmosis doesn't support XML changeset records in OSM files.  It supports
the changeset id attribute on entities and will create dummy changeset
records in the database to satisfy referential integrity, but all the
metadata associated with a changeset is ignored.  If you process a file
with only changeset records then no processing will occur.
