WFS-T and OSM are really not closely enough related. The big thing is that WFS-T is all based on 'simple features', typically based on GML, rather than a topological format like OSM. There is no simple solution to this, and I'm not aware of anyway to use WFS-T that would get around this particular problem.

Chris's work in WFS-T is great, but really not something OSM can seriously take advantage of.

I'm going to close this: having sat untouched for 2.5 years has allowed the tech to develop, and proved that this integration simply isn't the right path.
