Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Seems that lidars will be becoming part of cars and are becoming cheap enough to be mounted on cars. Will open street map support uploading of lidar data.

Imagine a cm level accuracy of meshes with textures for the whole world with annotations. This would be a huge boon for self driving cars.

This is a question for the Forum, which is a better place to discuss things. https://forum.openstreetmap.org/

... or a mailing list (different groups of OSMers tend to use different ways to communicate). This help site is designed to "simple questions with answers"; it's really not suited to rambling discussions, or questions (like this one) that don't really have an answer.
