This thought occurred to me as well. I'm pretty sure JOSM could be
made to do this. It already detects which zoom levels are available
and overzooms the previous level if none is available at the current
one. I know P2 doesn't overzoom but it also seems to detect when no
imagery is available and just blanks out the background.
