If it helps, I wrote a quick web application that reads in the latest copy
of the file(*) when you start a session, and displays the id as a
hyperlink (with optional api and remote control links as well).


I've been working down the list in ID order (though you can sort the
columns if you want) following this method:
a) use the id link to browse the way to check it hasn't already been
deleted or marked as odbl=clean
b) if it does need remapping, use the remote control link to open the way
c) in JOSM, use the download button to download the area around the way
d) in JOSM run the licence check plugin
e) remap the way and any adjacent major ways
f) upload


(*) written originally for the major roads file, which is still default,
you can now also select the file which contains the secondary ways as well
from the dropdown list. I've not yet started on that list...
