Counting tags instead of objects is another way to handle this, add some
bonus for polygons instead of single nodes POI.

If you want to take into account not only new objects, have a look at
augmented-diffs which allow to easily track changes on objects without
having to maintain a full OSM database as they provide previous and new
version of a modified object. This allows to detect new tags added on an
existing object.
