Isn't the copyright scare that information is going to be copied from
Google Maps to OSM? How is that any more possible in this case than it
is by opening two browsers and placing them side by side? (other than I
guess it drags each to the same place automatically, but there's still
no way to *edit* via this page...)

How can you see projection errors without having the Google Maps
alongside it?

But then you can't move the map around. Is that useful? I didn't find it
useful -- that's why I used the Google Maps hack to begin with, but if
people want to manually create mercator projection extents, I suppose that 
I can do that. Note that I never set up WMS for it, as I don't really know
