Somebody is already trying.

I note that one question asked about that proposal is if it shouldn't
be merged with the general GIS one.

No matter what we end up doing, it probably wouldn't hurt for some of
us to keep an eye on the GIS area if it get going, just so we can
answer any questions related to OSM that come up.  I do think we
shouldn't take it over, but that doesn't mean we can't participate.
