For that matter, are different projections used at different zoom levels?  At the higher zoom levels, since you will likely be viewing only a small geographical area at a time, it would make sense to use a projection with a minimum of distortion, even for high latitudes, rather than a Mercator projection.

Not quite on topic, but somewhat related:
Has anyone made and published tiles for an azimuthal equidistant or a similar projection centered on the poles with osm data?

best regards

 There is also this node:

 maybe indicate another bug in some application (Josm?).
 Is someone working on this?
