Interesting - (like many people I'm sure) I try and incorporate some 
idea of "data quality" into the Garmin maps that I create for my own use 
(i.e. what to map next), indicating what's likely to have come just from 
aerial tracing (and missing out e.g. shop names) and what's likely to be 
dodgy GPS traces or not-joined-up-in-potlatch ways.  This is all user 
based, so a changeset data quality metric (which could be accumulated 
into a user data quality metric) would certainly be useful to me.
