I think you should define the 'obligatory' fields and
the "random junk". The presence of the obligatory
will allow the upload and download of the attribute
based on the category value (uid). It will be a major
database performance boost. I can't really believe
that you
want to keep the random-length 'tag' strings in the

GPX is not exactly the GIS holy grail. I wish i could
read and write 
the CSV attribute tables.

I will add the following to the feature list:

- caching the OSM login data, saving the retyping it
on any
bounding box change.
- identifying a person not by the login, but by the
RSA public key,
the way ssh works.
