You can already download (public) GPX files from the server, kind of:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/trace/29881/data
http://www.openstreetmap.org/trace/29882/data
http://www.openstreetmap.org/trace/29883/data
etc. etc. etc.

It might be valuable to implement Potlatch's trackpoint ordering via  
the XML API (i.e. ORDER BY fileid DESC,timestamp - but not connecting  
any two points with a different fileid or where the difference in  
timestamps>180).
