Osmose QA tool do this job.
Look at this, last tow section at menu.
Mainly items are in France.

Btw, the French region of Aquitaine (country around Bordeaux), have 
funded work to integrate into osmose more OpenData on this territory, I 
will do this in march.

For addresse integration we have also a specific tool :

Osmose can be a base work for this thematic. The OpenData part of Osmose 
is done as generic, so add new opendata set is simple.

Btw, if you interested in add OpenData set to Osmose for integration or 
validation/gardeange of already integrated data, just ask.
