In Steve's upload, we have a UUID with each element. I believe that is the NID.

That, I'm not sure how to handle, especially when the OSM nodes and
ways won't match up with the GeoBase nodes and ways. How would you
match them when there may be 3 OSM nodes and only 2 GeoBase nodes, or
more likely 6 GeoBase ways making up a roadway that is defined by only
one OSM way.
