Hi Jason,

I'll stick with parks then, only ~700 items.

I wasn't aware gnis preservation was a priority. I'll have to think 
something up because I've avoided adding the ability to edit/delete 
existing OSM data to keep the code simple and the interface simple.

Everything in OSMLY just uses existing accounts because all changesets 
are uniquely tagged per import automatically. Does that not work? I was 
just following what the seattle import did in that regard, 
. JOSM just uses whatever account the user was logged in with, there's 
really not much I can do there other than load the geometry.
