[HOT] TomNod integration for the next time around

I think we're already using the same imagery; it's entirely from
DigitalGlobe, and the Mapbox crew processed that and made it available to
us within hours of it being released (Camilla or Charlie - correct me if
I'm wrong). The issue is that participants (~5,000 people this time) in
DigitalGlobe's Tomnod project are deriving basic damage assessment data
from the same imagery, and that information isn't making it to OSM.
The two ideas I outlined below are just sketches for how we could make use
of that derived data to save time and effort, though there are surely many
