Then maybe api could be enhanced to (optionally) serve also timestamps, 
as they are no secret (one can easily get whole GPX from the web, 
automating the process based on GPX tags or starting coordinates). It is 
essential to have timestamps in order to connect the dots nicely, or 
gaps in traces should be indicated in some other way, to make the 
"connect the dots" JOSM feature useful.
