Well, if you think it's useful, just add a key/value to it. How about:


Then any other can increase the number. Or if you want to be more verbose, do 
something like

confirmed=jim at jibbering.com

and wait for others to put their account as comma-seperated list.

If some system is established as usefull, I'll be happy to add a shortcut to 
increment/add to JOSM. ;-)

Ciao, Imi.
