That's exactly my aim: survey info.

What would you recommend?

That's not my aim - at least not only. I do not want the photos to
disappear as soon as a bug is fixed. It should work just like the GPS
traces, but I guess we would need some additional filtering, e.g.
maximum age. The latter would also be a good idea for GPS traces by
the way.

In JOSM (or whatever editor) it should work just like the GPS traces:
a selection to download all photos of the given area.
