It would be handy to get just the diff files. I did a diff in SQL against the named ways, but it would be handy to have a diff .OSM file for everyone to start with that contains all changes. I'm not sure how to do that.

Reasonably easy to do yourself with Ian's java shp-to-osm. The worst part I have had was county wide osm converted tiger files in JOSM. But tat can be avoided several ways.

A side note, with JOSM is there a way to copy from one layer to another while maintaining position? I have done it a few times in the past with copy and paste and then repositioning, but I would prefer to maintain the exact position.

Is anyone just simply running a country wide diff set from 2008 tiger,
and then converting the files into .osm format and simply making them
available, so local area mappers can claim their areas and copy-in
what ever they wish?
