Not really. JOSM has the "slippymap" plugin which can be configured to 
use any tile source (the dropdown has a limited list but you can edit 
the slippymap.tile_url preference directly), but that plugin is limited 
to zoom level 12 at the moment. I had made provisions to support any 
zoom level initially, but then gave up because the UI became too 
difficult (what with selecting the appropriate zoom level for your 
current view and all that).

The slippymap plugin was mainly intended for working with tiles at home, it 
supports retrieval of status information for individual tiles from the 
t at h server and you can also enqueue tiles for update. But supporting 
other zoom levels would be a great thing, also for the coastline and 
maplint debug tiles.

If anyone with Java skills wants to have a go at it... ;-)
