So obviously somebody has been canvassing for "support" for this. Getting a couple of dozen hard core mappers to agree with you doesn't change anything.

We're talking here about what makes good UX for the 99% not what will make the 1% a little happier.

If you want something to show tile status then fine. I might even agree to an option to get the tile URL or expire a tile (though the latter is perhaps unlikely) but it needs to be properly integrated, not just dumping the URL in another tab and letting the user fiddle with it.

By all means add a "show tile status" menu entry that opens a popup or the side bar with the tile coordinates and last refresh date etc though - that would be vaguely sensible from a UX/UI point of view.
