Overlay for officially produced charts?

Has anyone made an overlay with the current Paper Charts vertexes for officially produced charts? Same for ENCs.
If not done, how to do it from developer point of view? Could it be done by using of JOSM or is it better to edit
Javascript/PHP source code of the OSM software? Since I'm PHP developer, I'd prefer to work with the source code.

We store vertexes for each UKHO chart in our mysql database, which will surely help to do develop what we want.
Any advices or hints would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

An overlay of what data & for what usage?

UKHO chart data is copyright material, so we could not use it.

Re: Overlay for officially produced charts?

We shall check with UKHO regarding copyright, but if only vertexes are used, data copyright should not be infringed. Same for other official chart providers. It appears that outlines for several European charts are already shown (Tools->Download Chart option in OSM software).
Could you let us know, where source code for the option above (Download Chart) is in the software?
