Do you have plans to write a vector rendering plugin to remove the 
dependency on local or remote tiles?  I'm working on an amateur radio 
application called APRSISCE that runs on Windows Mobile and Win32 and 
would love to be able to query for XML and do local map rendering rather 
than fetching OSM tiles as I do now.  With a vector rendering solution, 
I can do arbitrary scaling instead of being restricted to the 2x per 
zoom level that OSM tiles provide.
