I realised the fact that I missed the edit link so much is because my  
own map page that I normally use has one, so I've now added the "no  
names" layer to it:


Select "Mapnik" then click on the little arrow and select  
"Highlighted". Edit link is in the top right, a location search is in  
a drop down box at the top of the page. The page will store your  
location in cookies, as well as in the hash, I find it useful to just  
have this as a bookmark under "Map" :-)

I should probably point out that the aerial imagery is from Microsoft,  
not Yahoo!, so shouldn't be used to derive stuff for OSM.


P.S. I've assumed it's ok for me to link to the tiles like this, if  
anyone from Cloudmade can confirm this or tell me whether I need to  
setup my own API key or whatever that would be useful.
