Anything wrong with copying the "Improved conflict resolution in JOSM" idea from last year? There wasn't much development in that area, so this would still be a nice project.

Other stuff I can think of at the moment:

 * Work on gwtosm project, i.e. create a usable javascript editor based on the josm sources.

 * Continue signfinder [1] GSoC project from 2009, i.e. create a JOSM plugin that reads street names off photos

 * Create a scripting API for JOSM. The plugin by Karl already provides the infrastructure, so this project could focus on design and implementation of a easy to use and robust interface.
