Today the OSM community can use several tools to add items on the map.

But if you want to just change the tags of a single already mapped item do you really need to load an entire program (like Josm, iD, Potlatch)?

Some days ago I discovered the incredible online tool Level0 that permit to directly add/change/remove tags.

This got me thinking about why there is not an integrated system in to make such a thing too.

We already can select an element (in the nominatim results list, from data-layer, or by “?” button on the map) and see its tags, but why can not a logged-in user directly edit them?

Andy Allan spoke about this in his recent talk at State of the Map US.
