Is there somewhere log of nominatim searches? I guess statistics of this search would be quite useless, as most addresses are searched only few times. I would use this table to test testing geocoding service(s).

Just a basic grep from web server access log which shows query strings would be quite enough. In perfect case it might include (first) result coordinates also.

I believe this is not done, and user privacy is one reason why.

Currently we don't even use this data ourselves (for example to mine postcodes or missing addresses) and IMHO doing so would require both a change of our privacy policy and the relevant acceptable use policy.

That said we have provided anonymized tile usage counts to third parties so maybe you can twist the OWGs arm to do the same for nominatim: http://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Operations_Working_Group
