I would not want us to encourage and support the widespread
photographing of private residences. I think that's a privacy nightmare.
If it is only for commercial or public buildings, then it could probably
be done.

In addition, I would not like to rely on a third-party service like
Mapillary since they can shut down their service at any time and then
what becomes of all the work?

Furthermore, adding tons of external IDs to OSM seems unnecessary; I'd
rather have the imagery service store the coordinates and then you can
query the service "which of your photos show this location" and thereby
find photos that show a particular building.
