If the applet can take over the browser (open new window, load and  
execute arbitrary Javascript - namely the Yahoo API code - and then  
transfer imagery loaded in the browser into the Java context) then:  
yes. I am not famliar with the latest developments in this area but  
most security precautions would have to be disabled to make it work.  
It is definitely a road worth investigating, even if it means having  
to run josm as an applet locally...
