** Extend the API to allow data to be updated
+
** Directly update data via web form
+
** Indirectly update data by synchronising previously-exported data; for example: http://data.gov.au/ data might have been submitted to http://www.openstreetmap.org/; when that data is updated on http://www.openstreetmap.org/, those changes could be synchronised back into http://data.gov.au/
