I don't want to create a free-for-all. I'd really like to be able to tie comments to osm accounts and that requires quite a bit of oauth work along with tying it into django's session/auth system. It's something I've wanted to do for a while with musical chairs but I've never really convinced myself it's worth investing the time.

Dare I say the bike shop locator doesn't have any auth, but does have the ability to place comments:

It does function more of a check list and doesn't do any fuzzy matching, so no auto matching.
