Please, update :-)

However, I can see the misalignment. It's weird, because the east-west
street (Rue Saint-Louis en l'Île) is aligned, while the south-north street
(Rue Legrattier) is not. It is like the image was misaligned in the first
street direction (something like West-North-West).

Isn't it simplier to display a Yahoo png logo in JOSM instead of doing

It's not only the logo, also the copyright. Is more political than
technical, so I think I can't do what you say. Anyway,it  is simpler this
way, less image manipulations.

You could also don't care about displaying the credit's on the image,

The same thing. I think we only have permission to use  JavaScript or Flash
APIs because logo and copyright issues.
