I'd vote for fhrs:id as the next project. I'm about half way through for 
my LA. (I also like Greg's trigpoint database.)

It's worth noting that Greg's site is primarily to use the fhrs database 
for the addition of postcodes/addresses, not the ID's themselves.

For instance, it doesn't update the "Total number of FHRS 
establishments" isn't update regularly and there's no 'Relevant OSM 
nodes/ways without fhrs:id'.
A break down per classification (Pubs, Restaurants, Hospitals etc) would 
be useful as well
I'm sure this can be created on another site. (Can anyone have a 
development site similar to Greg's)?

I've found that opening hours change so often, especially with small 
indie establishments, that it's just not worth the effort. I add a 
website if available (although they seem to alter often enough).
