Are there established read-only APIs for OSM data (similar to the kinds of RESTful API that GeoNames has established for their data)?

If so, is there a mapping of that API to the SQL requests responsible for returning the data? If that info does not exist explicitly, can it be found within the source code of some existing project?

If not, is there any work happening to establish an API?
