[gdal-dev] Basic OpenStreetMap driver with ReadOSM?

I was wondering if the ReadOSM library
(https://www.gaia-gis.it/fossil/readosm/index) by Alessandro Furieri could be
utilised for making a basic read-only OpenStreetMap driver. Basic driver would
read OSM data in XML or pbf format and write out point, line and polygon layers
with a fixed attribute schema following a tag list which user could give as
input. ReadOSM seems to have most if not all that is needed for that. A ready
made spatialite_osm_map program is some example into that way but it is not made
for generic use. It imports a hardcoded set of tags and creates a predefined set
of layers https://www.gaia-gis.it/fossil/spatialite-tools/index.
