What about address visibility on OSM data generated maps/tiles?
Without does being visible on map no one can verify them.
Verification is way easier and anyone can do it in his city just walking
with map showings on his phone. No JOSM editing proficiency necessary.
Then they can write on forum or talk-pl (they do that for everything now

For now all imports in Poland had positive verification and we should
have all Poland imported.
