I would like to have every stream in the U.S. available as a .osm
file. So, say, I am running along some road or railroad, and I see a
stream that doesn't exist in OSM yet. Rather than doing the
clicky-click myself, it would be great if I could load up the NHD
version of that stream. I could compare it against the aerial photos,
and the data already in OSM, and decide for myself if I want to use
that or do the clicky click.
