Talking of archiving the Yolanda info, while working for the Hagupit typhoon, 

I made propositions on the HOT Discussion list but only few comments.See http://gis.19327.n5.nabble.com/Damage-evaluation-tagging-schema-td5831094.html Plus still working on the Ebola activation and missed time assuring that this moves on.

I actually reached out to ChrisEspectato (via an OSM account message) on 21 February to ask about the purpose of the notes. If I haven't heard back after some time I was planning on going through and closing the notes. With the anonymous notes, reaching out isn't possible. I think it's good to close some of the notes in the manner you mention.
There are certainly some notes leftover from Yolanda that could be resolved (because they are no longer relevant or do not contain enough detail). On a side note, there are also many tags related to the Yolanda response that could be 'archived' or removed. Unfortunately this sort of cleanup work tends to be a lot less interesting than adding new details and features to the map. 
All the best,Dan

There is a discussion today on the general talk list about anonymous OSM notes.
The Yolanda / Haiyan Activation is an example where such info could have helped if more infos provided and the possibility to interact with the person adding such note. To revise the OSM Notes and enhance the map, we can select this layer from openstreetmap.org

Today, after more then a year, this info seems useless and I revises and resolves/closed some of these notes adding this comment:
Incomplete infos from this note or comments not related to mapping objects . More then a year later, no more infos added. I am closing this note.
I also see notes Created by ChrisEspectato with comments that seem to refer to an event or trip simply.  #28 1-27-14 834am   See http://www.openstreetmap.org/note/157873
