I do not yet have an idea about a plug-in for JOSM, but TMC inspector is 
already online:

Visit http://osm-tmc.infoware.de/tmc/
(Please report if the link does not work.)

I think this is a good means of visualizing the state of TMC mapping.

And there is another project at infoware to install and run a server 
that continuously shows the current traffic status on these road 
segments that are tagged according to the the new scheme.
