But... isn't there a danger that the mapper will load this
simplified/reduced object in JOSM (etc), change the tags, then press
upload? And then upload the simplified/reduced geometry? Which will make
the OSM data worse?

If you want to just edit the tags of large complicated objects, you
could use a special editor like Level0 or RawEditor? (Or write software
that makes the XML API call(s) yourself).
