What about system that they control
and is not proprietary or locked up?

It sounds like something that can be
stored in a simple database or evenin bunch of gpx/geojson/.osm files.

I would recommend some open storage
format that is simple and publishing
all datasets under permissible license
(CC0, ODBL?).

I would advise against OSM import
as necessary part of storing data
and using OSM as sole storage location.

What kind of proprietary 
would be useful here?
