I totally agree.

This is not meant to become the full-blown editor with all bells and 
whistles. Indeed JOSM seems to fultfill these demands already.

As a desktop app i'd rather see this as a beginner tool. Something that
potlatch might be. I remember my first steps in osm land as they aren't
were long ago and i basically wanted to use potlatch as it seemed 
an easy entry. The big show stopper with potlatch was that everything
is stored in the database immediately, so you are always afraid to
damage things. As long as you don't select "upload" osm2go is completely
safe for the main database.
