Something that would be useful for OSM would be a way to add new
background layers from a WMS or TMS url, maybe there is a way to do
that that I missed.  I only see Google Maps layer using which will
make your georeferenced imagery incompatible with OSM.  Another nice
feature would be adding more control points on the edges of a picture
or even in the middle (this would probably require splitting the pic
canvas in four squares for each new gcp).
