This is easy to work with in JOSM.  Just load both layers, and click on and
off to get the best view.  Is this additional layer going to stay?

Would be nice! :-)

I notice the landsat imagery on at GA is also CC-BY in much the same way as
the AGRI imagery was (including the soon to be released landsat 8).
Although I don't think the resolution will be as good as AGRI, it could be
useful to check for change, etc.  Is it possible to contact the same source
as before at GA, and confirm that they don't want any rights in data traced
from their other CC-BY imagery?
