You should really participate in the corresponding threads on the German forum http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=24168 and http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=27493 Likely somebody is already planning to make the changes on the 1st.

Not that merging boundaries (if present) or renaming cities is that complicated, but it is a task that needs coordination, knowledge of the local legal situation and local mapping conventions.
