In that case, using OSM object IDs is not the right approach as they are
"Stable IDs" is a discussion we've been having for years, and Roland
Olbricht has implemented something like that in Overpass (see
Simply slapping RDF on top of our database and thereby declaring our
existing IDs permanent doesn't cut it.
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/8125890 could be the River
Thames today, and a nearby house tomorrow. It would be foolish to link
to objects from the outside by their ID; a software solution like
Roland's is required to make this work reliably.
