It's certainly a good idea to limit the scope of a proposal as much as
possible in order to prevent issues from bogging it down.
In my area according to JOSM I've mapped 62 sloped_curb's, 86
crossings, and 16km (10 miles) of sidewalks. You can see it here:
I decided not to tag crossings with driveways, as that's a little too
crazy even for me. :)
