Nice idea. And if I export GPX instead of OSM, include all that
pub/bakery/... stuff as comments. (The gpx format support comments) 
These comments then show up in JOSM - very useful.

I usually add detail (housenumbers etc.) to areas that are already well 
mapped, so making OSM directly won't work for me. The road is already 
there, for example. GPX comments makes it easy to add only the stuff 
that is new.
