For the ortho and obliques the bigest issue is getting them out of their current format, we actually already have an online map of them that was set up by a private company who didn't give us much documentation.  The files are stored with a .par extention which I havn't had too much luck finding documentation on.

"3" works for JOSM too (ImportImage plugin) albeit with limitations 
(image size etc.).

It is true that Potlatch doesn't do WMS natively but there are simple 
and more elaborate (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tirex) ways of 
serving a WMS as tiles for consumption by Potlatch.
