In short:

Mappers need not worry about changing mapping habits.  Editing is the
way it is (unlike the transition from API 0.4 to 0.5!), you're just
encourage to explain your edit session via changeset comments

This is what I usually do:
1. Download a manageable chunk via OSMXAPI.
2. Edit via JOSM for a full 4-5 hours.
3. Then upload via my dial-up (10 kbps) connection.
4. Sleep.

What if someone edited a few ways?  Does it invalidate my whole
changeset/edit session? Or just the modified node/way/relation?
