Yes, I agree that more colours could clarify this. Currently, all
areas in Italy seem to be green, where some of the ones I checked
offer resolutions up to zoom 17 (not quite the very best imagery
imaginable) and others up to 20 (absolutely sufficient for the very
most OSM-usecases). I you would use a colour scale for availability at
different zoom levels this tool would gain a lot IMHO, without
requiring a lot of effort to implement.
