I'm also in favor of such a first page... maybe organized as a splash
screen (view/edit/get involved) on top of the existing map.

At least it shows that OSM if not only the default map. I would add
one more thing "more tools" to link to other maps ans dites based on
OSM data providing tools to end users (like mapquest, skobbler,
openlinkmap, etc, etc).
