Frederik, Marc,

This is already partly possible. There is an "order" attribute in the
resources, where higher numbers are more important. It's good practice to
discuss the numbering within the local community. I agree it would be an
improvement to mark channels as "main", "also used" and "hardly used at
all". Though even with the current logic, a data user like iD could choose
to only show the "top 3 channels" for the region you are in.

A tip for people wanting to see if their favorite medium is available for
the region of their interest: in the OSM community index visualization at
https://community.osm.be/ (made by Jonathan Beliën) you can easily filter
by medium.
(that site, btw, also offers pages like this
https://community.osm.be/resources/europe/belgium which we re-use at OSM.be
to not have to manage channels in more places than necessary).
