There needs to be a separate OSM database for time transient projects like this that could then be combined with the "regular" database.  It could also be used for special projects (underground cave maps might be an example), personal projects, children's mapping projects etc.  The last example interests me in conjunction with OJW's Sketch demo.  Hoping to do something myself but that might be a pious wish.
