Use of OSM data drives editing of OSM data, as long as people know
it's editable. We discovered that effect when I was still at
Cloudmade. So my suggestion is to look at the way OSM data is used and
make sure that the people who are the end consumers of that data know
that they can contribute to the accuracy of the map.
