If comparing editors, there's also the fact that iD users tend to save
much more often than JOSM users, making smaller changesets. Give a
description of what you worked on for an hour ? Sure. Give 20
descriptions of what you worked on for an hour ? It gets boring
quickly.

When you save often, you tend to write much smaller comments, or reuse
the same vague comment for many changesets. Most annoying are detailed
comments that pertain to an older changeset (such as "Add POI for my
favorite map shop" in 10 different changesets where only the first one
added a POI).
