This is the current reason *I* have been unable to contribute to OSM in the last 
few years. All of the material I am gathering relates to historic mapping and I 
want somewhere that I can share it with other like minded users. Perhaps now is 
the time simply to fork a version that is only intended for historic mapping. 
There does not seem to be any agreement on a cross database API as an 
alternative to destroying data as it is superseded by changes on the ground. But 
one of the rules that does apply is that data that has been generated by others 
SHOULD NOT simply be destroyed unless it is inappropriate.
