I think that the "tagging" view in the OSM Inspector 
(http://tools.geofabrik.de/osmi/) is already quite a good start for such 
a validation tool. The OSMI is based on the very idea of not fixing 
anything automatically, just flagging things and saying "did you perhaps 
mean so-and-so", and making it as easy as possible to then go and fix 
them manually. There's still a long way to go obviously (full JOSM 
integration would be cool ;-) but it's a good start I think.
